The record industry is not quite 
the same industry it was when rec- 
ord manufacturers and members 
of NARM, the rack-jobbing associa- 
tion, gathered at a NARM conven- 
tion a year ago. 

The past five NARM confabs— 
the sixth begins in Miami Beach to- 
day-proved themselves to be valu- 
able forums for an interchange of 
ideas between the record industry 
and the sub-distributors. 

However, the current meeting 
should outdo all previous gather- 
ings in providing stimulating com- 
ment on today’s disk industry pic- 
ture. 

A major reason for this is the 
significant change that has taken 
place since the last NARM meet in 
merchandising of product through 
the sub-distributor. 

One post- 1963 convention deci- 
sion was announced in early Au- 
gust when Columbia Records intro- 
duced its “Age of Reason” stabili- 
zation move. The other, of course, 
is the move made only a few weeks 
ago by Capitol Records when it an- 
nounced its “Stand For Stability” 
policy which erased the practice of 
offering sub-distributors any func- 
tional discount. 

When Columbia debuted its pro- 
gram it was coldly received by 
racks. But in the nine months it has 
been in practice, sub-distributors 
appear to have been able to adjust 
to it. The more recent Capitol move 
is probably still a very big pill in 
the throats of sub-distribs. But the 
company has not yet folded and 
much of its product, still very 
much in demand, continues to 
dominate the very top of the charts. 

However, we can be certain that 
both of these moves will be put 


through the conversational mill 
(both onstage and off) before the 
Convention has run its course. 

In addition to the Columbia and 
Capitol points, the entire area of 
sub-distribution is under scrutiny 
of the Federal Government. No 
doubt everyone attending the con- 
vention is well aware that at this 
very moment the Federal Trade 
Commission is examining various 
rules which might govern the prac- 
tice of the record industry. This, 
too, should have a significant effect 
on the convention. 

Thus, there is room for great 
discussion and debate at this week’s 
NARM convention. And the hotter 
it is within the bounds of propriety, 
the better off both labels and rack- 
jobbers will be at the conclusion of 
the convention. 

NARM conventions have always 
given the music business some- 
thing to think about. Only through 
frank and open expressions can 
both parties get at the heart of the 
matters that make disk sales less 
than they could be. 

After all, greater profits are 
what both industry groups are 
after. 

The airing of views is one im- 
portant way to cut through the red- 
tape of confusion and misunder- 
standing. The fact that label dis- 
play space at NARM is a complete 
sell-out this year indicates a desire 
to reach a clearing, which can only 
benefit both manufacturers and 
rack-jobbers. 

We’re looking forward to hear- 
ing both parties go at it tooth-and- 
nail in the verbal sense. Each 
side has something to say. They 
shouldn’t leave any doubt as to 
their stand on certain issues. 
Happy dehate!

Beatles Get 4th Cash Box Int’l Award 


LONDON — The fabulous Beatles are 
pictured with their Cash Box Inter- 
national Awards presented to artists 
whose internationally produced re- 
cordings reached the number one 
spot on the Cash Box Top 100 Chart. 
Sir Joseph Lockwood, Chairman of 
EMI (third from right) attended the 
presentation made by George Albert 
(third from left) Cash Box vice pres- 
ident, who hosted the presentation 
luncheon while on a trip through 
Europe. The three gold awards were 
made for “She Loves You,” “Twist 
And Shout” and “Can’t Buy Me 
Love.” When the Beatles were in 
America they received their award 
for “I Want To Hold Your Hand.” 
The Beatles, (1. to r.) are Ringo 
Starr, George Harrison, John Lennon 
and Paul McCartney. The photo on 
right shows Sir Joseph admiring 
one of the gold CB International 
Trophies,, commenting on it to Ne- 
ville Marten, Cash Box’s European 
Director. 



See Big Sales Horizons 
For U.S. Audio Products 
In Foreign Markets 

NEW YORK— High Fidelity equip- 
ment manufacturers are looking to 
the market abroad for new sales 
gains. 

According to a report in The Jour- 
nal of Commerce, U.S. hifi firms see 
a greatly expanding market in for- 
eign countries as a result of: more 
money for luxury products, the 
growth of classical music and recog- 
nition of the quality of U.S. -made 
components. 

Figures rleeased by the Dept, of 
Commerce indicate this boom. Last 
year’s audio product — including tape 
recorders — sales abroad amounted to 
$25.4 million from $23 million the 
year before. 

HiFi manufacturers believe this 
interest from foreign sound buffs 
couldn't come at a more opportune 
time, since profit margins in the U.S. 
are tighter, competition greater.

CBS Earnings Up 20% 

NEW YORK — The first quarter earn- 
ings of the Columbia Broadcasting 
Co., parent firm of Columbia Rec- 
ords, were up 20% over the first 
quarter of 1963, president Frank 
Stanton told CBS stockholders in 
Chicago last week. 

CBS’ net for the first three months 
of this year was $12 million, up 
from a $10 million showing in the 
1963 period, according to preliminary 
figures. Sales are expected to rise 
by about 10%, to $156 million from 
$141 million. 

In breaking down financial achieve- 
ments by affiliates, it was stated that 
Columbia Records continued to hold 
its own as the sales leader among 
U.S. labels. 


MG M Pics Earns $1.2 Mil 

NEW YORK — In a 16 week period 
ended Mar. 12, Metro-Goldwyn-May- 
er, Inc. earned $1.2 million, com- 
pared to a loss of $6.4 million dur- 
ing the same period last year, ac- 
cording to Robert O’Brien, president. 
Over a 28 week period also ending 
on Mar. 12, the company, which 
owns the MGM label, cleared $1.9 
million, while realizing a loss of $8.7 
million in a comparable period in 
1963. 


Profit For Paramount Pics 

NEW YORK — Following an operat- 
ing loss in 1962, Paramount Pictures, 
which numbers ABC-Paramount Rec- 
ords among its affiliates, came 
through with a profit in 1963. 

It was reported last week that net 
income of the corporation last year 
amounted to $5,908,000, equal to 
$3.58 a share, on 1,652,531 shares 
outstanding. A loss of $2,754,000 was 
reported in 1962, the first in-the-red 
showing in 25 years. Gross income 
rose to $116,374,000 from $113,512,- 
000. 1963’s net and gross income were 
bettered only in 1960 when the firm 
reported a net profit of $7 million 
and gross sales of $131 million. 


RIAA To Congress: Recognize 
Disks As A Major Art Form 

NEW YORK— The Record Industry 
Association of America has asked 
Congress to grant recognition to disks 
as a major art form. 

Testifying last week (15) before a 
Special Subcommittee of the House 
Committee on Education and Labor, 
RIAA’s executive secretary, Henry 
Brief, requested an amendment to 
H. R. 9587, which would establish a 
National Council on the Arts and a 
National Arts Foundation to assist in 
the growth and development of the 
arts in the United States. 

Pointing out that motion pictures, 
radio and television were accorded 
recognition in the bill as art forms, 
Brief asked that recordings be added 
to the other media because of the in- 
dustry’s contributions to the arts and 
the culture of the country. 

“The phonograph record today is 
one of the principal media used in the 
communication of education, culture 
and entertainment not only to our na- 
tion but also to the peoples of the 
world. Symphonies, concertos, operas, 
musicals, poetry and plays have been 
brought into the homes of areas so 
remote from theatres and concert 
halls that people there would other- 
wise have had no opportunity to en- 
joy these cultural blessings. Lan- 
guages are being taught through 
records. Better than 80% of the pro- 
gram material carried on AM and FM 
radio in this country consists of rec- 
ords. 

“In addition, records have become 
historical documents, capable of pre- 
serving the voices and the artistry of 
today’s greats for the appreciation of 
future generations. Indeed, it was the 
dream of Thomas A. Edison, when he 
develoned the phonograph and the 
record, that ‘it will henceforth be pos- 
sible to preserve for future genera- 
tions the voices as well as the words 
of our Washingtons and our Lin- 
colns’,” Mr. Brief declared. 

He added that there are many in 
the record industry who, “by virtue of 
their training, background and ex- 
perience, would be excellently suited 
to, and would make a significant con- 
tribution to, the National Council on 
the Arts which is also proposed in 
H. R. 9587.” 

Brief’s testimony was given to a 
Subcommittee chaired bv Renresenta- 
tive Frank Thompson, Jr. (D., N.J.). 
A similar bill, S. 2379, was passed by 
the Senate last Dec. 


Todd Storz Dies 

NEW YORK— Todd Storz, 39, head 
of the broadcasting chain bearing 
his name, died last week in Miami 
Beach of a cerebral hemorrhage. 

The exec, who originated the “Top 
40” formula, began his career with 
the purchase of KOHW-Omaha in 
1949. He later sold the outlet but 
eventually forged a chain of sta- 
tions which included WDGY-Min- 
neapolis, KXOK-St. Louis, WHB- 


Cahn & Van Heusen "Oscar" 
Came From Left Field — 
Even With 6 Going For Them 

NEW YORK — A pair of old hands at 
winning Best Song Oscars walked 
away with two more statuettes last 
week, but they surprised most music 
people in getting them. 

Sammy Cahn and James Van Heu- 
sen each got an Oscar for “Call Me 
Irresponsible,” which they wrote for 
the film, “Papa’s Delicate Condition.” 

While the song achieved good suc- 
cess on disks and wide exposure 
through other media, the odds-on 
favorite was “More,” from the Italian- 
made film, “Mondo Cane,” another 
big pic song success. 

Cahn, a lyricist, and melody-maker 
Van Heusen have now won a total of 
eight Oscars throught the years. Be- 
sides “Call Me,” Cahn & Van Heusen 
teamings that have resulted in Os- 
cars for “All the Way” (1957) and 
• High Hopes” (1959), and, like “Call 
Me,” were introduced on the screen 
by Frank Sinatra. Away from Cahn, 
Van Heusen came-up with an Os:ar 
for “Swingin’ on a Star” (1944), lyr- 
ics by the late Johnny Burke. Cahn 
a^o wrote Oscar lyrics to Jule Styne’s 
melody for “Three Coins in a Foun- 
tain” (1954). 

Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer, 
by the way, failed in their bid to 
achieve a third straight Oscar for 
“Charade.” 

On the Oscar awards telecast last 
Mon. (13) each of the five nominated 
songs were sung “live” by Harve 
Presnel (‘So Little Time”), Katyna 
Ranieri (“More,” written by hubby 
Riz Ortolani) and Andy Williams, 
who performed two of them, “Cha- 
rade” and “Call Me Irresponsible”) 
and James Darren (“It’s a Mad, Mad, 
Mad, Mad World.”). 

In other music Oscars, “Tom Jones,” 
the winner of four major Oscars, in- 
cluding Best Film, got one for its 
background score by John Addison 
(soundtrack LP on United Artists 
Records) and Andre Previn received 
an Academy Award for his scoring of 
“Irma La Douce” (soundtrack LP 
also on United Artists). 

Epic Records got an important 
boost for its soundtrack album on 
“Lilies of the Field” by virtue of the 
best actor Oscar to Sidney Poitier, 
whose triumph was heightened by the 
fact that he is the first Negro to win 
a top 3 (film, actor, actress) Oscar. 

As always, music helped put the 
Oscar presentation across. Besides the 
singing of the nominees, Johnny 
Green led the orchestra in an overture 
that saluted the many evergreens with 
lyrics by Arthur Freed, president of 
the Academy Awards and longtime 
producer of MGM musica’s. Sammy 
Davis Jr. also sang a bevy of Oscar 
“losers,” those songs that were nomi- 
nated for Academy Awards, but failed 
to go all the way. 


Kansas City, KOMA-Oklahoma City 
and WTIX-New Orleans. 

Storz is survived by his wife, Lori, 
two sons and a daughter. 


The CBS Label: ONE BIG YEAR LATER 


NEW YORK — One look, a single im- 
age. That was the aim of Columbia 
Records when it established its CBS 
logo for the entire international mar- 
ket a year ago. 

There’s still some work to be done to 
fully realize this unique goal, but in 
most respects the achievement is a 
reality. This is the word from Harvey 
Schein, who, as vp and general man- 
ager of Columbia’s Int’l Operations 
directs the activities of the CBS label. 

Schein, in fact, puts himself on rec- 
ord as declaring that Columbia Rec- 
ords, through its CBS label, does more 
annual business in the international 
market than all U.S. labels, excepting 
RCA Victor, do both in the U.S. and 
foreign markets combined. 

Schein also says he isn’t looking too 
far into the future in seeing the day 
when most U.S. labels do as much 
business abroad as they do domesti- 
cally. “We’re close to that day, pos- 
sibly in the period of three to five 
years,” he predicts. 

All activities and directions of CBS 
indicate that Schein’s forecast is 
taken to heart. 

Schein notes that even in areas 


where CBS does not fully control Dm 
firms that release its product, every 
attempt is made to separate the CBS 
set-up from other labels that may be 

In setting-up its operations abroad, 
CBS brings each licensee and/or 
wholly-owned affiliate a combination 
of American know-how and local con- 
ditions that may exist in a particular 
area. 

By standardizing the CBS logo on 
all material released — singles or LP’s 
— together with similar cover sleeve 
artwork, immediate identification of a 
respected name is gained throughout 
the world. 

This procedure not only has con- 
sumer advantages, but, as Schein 
points-out, American performers who 
record for Columbia Records now feel 
that their product has a much better 
chance on the international scene. 

“American artists,” Schein feels, 
“need not be fearful of their not being 
in good hands. The artist knows his 
product is properly presented in all 
markets and is put forward in a suit- 
able image.”

Cash Box — April 25, 1964 


NARM CONVENTION BEGINS 


Latin American 
Music Meet In 
Mexico City 
“Complete Success” 

MEXICO CITY— “A wonderful op- 
portunity for getting in touch with 
record people from other countries” 
was concensus of opinion about the 
Third Convention of the Latin Amer- 
ican Federation of Record Producers, 
which closed last week (15) in Mexi- 
co City. Sixty Latin American disk- 
eries were represented, and American 
producers, disk jockeys and other peo- 
ple related to the disk business were 
also on hand. 

The event, considered very impor- 
tant for the future of relations be- 
tween L.A. diskeries, had two main 
sides : the regular meetings held twice 
a day at the Maria Isabel Hotel, 
which was also home to the conven- 
tioneers, and informal gatherings be- 
tween them to arrange representation 
contracts and exchange of tapes. 
Tradesters from twelve countries were 
present, thus providing a complete 
coverage of the area. 

The most important points dis- 
cussed at the confab were related to 
the possibility of forming a sole pub- 
lishing company to serve the needs 
of all the diskeries involved. It was 
considered that this possibility should 
be carefully studied, since it is prob- 
ably still very early to apply it now. 
However, the general trend among the 
diskeries is to form its own publishing 
companies, to control the tunes penned 
by the local artists recording for each 
company. 

Another very interesting point was 
the study of the relations between the 
record companies and the composers 
and publishers societies, since there 
are big differences between the per- 
centages paid in the different coun- 
tries. In the future, the common prob- 
lems will be discussed by the Federa- 
tion, leaving the details to the consid- 
eration of the Associations of each 
country. 

There was also talk regarding trade 
marks, which in several cases are very 
similar. In all cases, the companies 
will cooperate to avoid costly discus- 
sions and delays. Another established 
point was the decision of strengthen- 
ing as much as possible the force of 
the composers and producers rights 
in all countries, and to present only 
one point of view in all the interna- 
tional meetings with other associa- 
tions. 

Among other news reported by the 
record representatives is the start of 
a common market for records in Cen- 
tral America, including five nations, 
with a great improvement in the size 
and conditions of the field in the area, 
since one company will be able to cov- 
er the five countries. 

Among the people present at the 
convention were : Fausto Feraud, Ger- 
ardo Pena and Trajano Recaldo from 
Ecuador; Carl Greenberg, Joao Rah- 
mi, Alberto Pittigliani, Bill Morris, 
Nilo Sergio, Henry Jessen and Emilio 
Vitale from Brazil; Hector Farfan, 
Augusto Sarria, Nilo Marchand, Jose 
Salzar, Luis Aubry and Luis Grana 
of Peru; Adolfo Pino, Ian Morris, 
Philip Brodie, Nestor Selasco, En- 
rique Rosso, Maximo Wyngaard from 
Argentina; Henry Epple, Luis Grez 
and Alain Trossat from Chile and 
Emilio Fortou, Alfonso Escolar, Fer- 
nando Mora, Orlando Posada, Rafael 
Acosta Salinas and Guillermo de Be- 
dout from Colombia. Representing 
Mexico were David Crump, Rogerio 
Azcarraga, Eduardo Baptista, Heinz 
Klinckworth, Jose R. Bustillos, Ar- 
naldo Ramirez, Andre Toffel, Con- 
stantin Metaxas, Manuel Vidal Za- 
pater and Arnaldo Ramirez Valdez. 

Next week Cash Box will print com- 
plete information about the official 
decisions taken at the convention and 
other details of this event. The next 
meeting of the Federation will take 
place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 
1966.

(See Next Page) 


NEW YORK — With interest in this 
week’s sixth annual NARM conven- 
tion in Miami Beach this week height- 
ened by industry developments since 
the last rack-jobber confab (see this 
week’s editorial), top level label and 
rack personnel converged on the sun- 
lit city last weekend. 

During the course of the gathering, 
officially running from April 19 to 
the 23rd, those in attendance will hear 
a number of addresses and panel dis- 
cussions (see schedule of events on 
next page). 

George Marek, general manager of 
RCA Victor Records, is delivering 
this year’s keynote speech. His topic 
is “A Reaffirmation of Faith.” Bill

Starday Expands In 
C&W Budget Field With 
Economy Series And 
New Nashville Line 

NEW YORK — Don Pierce, president 
of Starday Records, in an advertising 
move coinciding with the Miami Beach 
NARM meet, announced last week 
that the label is offering a new and 
expanded economy series consisting of 
20 albums (8 Starday combination 
sampler LPs and 12 new releases on 
Starday’s Nashville label.) 

Starday, with many years of suc- 
cessful operation as an exclusively 
country and sacred label, has built 
up one of the largest and most diver- 
sified country catalogs in the industry. 
In recent months, the diskery has felt 
the need to expand its activities in 
the low price album field to meet 
competition and because it will mean 
extra sales and profits for the label’s 
distribs. 

Pierce feels that economy series is 
noteworthy for several reasons: from 
12 to 18 songs are offered in each 
package instead of the customary 10 
selections; top name artists and prom- 
inent songs are included in each al- 
bum; all of the albums in the series 
will have full-color jackets. 

Suggested retail price for the econ- 
omy series is $1.98; however, there 
are no price tags on any of the LP 
jackets and this permits maximum 
flexibility in pricing at the discretion 
of the retailer. 

Pierce emphasized that every effort 
will be made to accomplish sales to 
rack jobbers through Starday distribs. 
100% exchange privilege, dated bill- 
(Continued on page 47) 


ords, will also be a featured speaker 
at the convention. 

Albert Carretta (NARM’s special 
counsel in Washington) will speak on 
the subject of: “Trade Practice Rules 
— A Formula for Profitable Compli- 
ance.” 

As the aforementioned addresses 
indicate, there will apparently be lots 
of soul-searching in relation to what 
courses the business will be taking in 
the years ahead. 

Cash Box Magazine will be repre- 
sented by Marty Ostrow, the publica- 
tion’s Editor-in-Chief and Jerry Shif- 
rin, National Advertising Director.

inary list of Regular and Associate

Pickwick's $1.98 C. & W. 
Label Bows With 12 LP's 

NEW YORK — Pickwick International, 
Inc., strong low-priced LP lines has 
established Hilltop Records, a new 
Country music label, and has released 
an initial schedule of 12 albums by 
such top stars as Ferlin Husky, Webb 
Pierce, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, 
Jimmy Dean, Hank Lockin, Rex 
Allen, T. Texas Tyler, Faron Young 
and others. 

The new label’s $1.98 albums are 
being handled through distribs only. 
Pickwick has set up an extensive net- 
work of 65 distribs and co-distribs 
throughout the country. Prior to re- 
lease of the dozen LP’s, all distribs 
were introduced to the Hilltop line 
by a handsome promotion package 
consisting of cover art, photos, pro- 
motion material and a personal letter 
from Leslie. 

According to Cy Leslie, Pickwick 
president, the new line has met with 
“enthusiastic response from distribu- 
tors and initial orders have already 
exceeded the company’s expectations.” 

Hilltop covers were created by 
Frank Daniel, one of the record in- 
dustry’s most noted graphic designers, 
who was responsible for the design 
of London Records’ Phase 4 series 
and other award-winning album cov- 
ers. 

Hilltop is being launched with a 
comprehensive advertising, merchan- 
dising and promotion campaign, Les- 
lie said. Plans call for department store 
tie-ins, sales incentive programs, con- 
test promotions, and special tie-ins 
with state fairs and expositions 
around the country. Leslie is pushing 
the product at the NARM (National 
Association of Record Merchandisers, 
Inc.) Convention in Miami Beach, this

Prestige Into New Musical Horizons; 
Names Chirumbolo, Herlich To Key Posts 


NEW YORK — The overall expansion 
of Prestige Records has led to major 
staff appointments at the label. 

Brought in to expand the sales po- 
tential of Prestige product is Vic 
Chirumbulo, who will serve as exec 
vp; A1 Herlich, who previously headed 
the contract dept, of RCA Victor, is 
now controller of the label. Chirum- 
bulo comes to Prestige with a number 
of sales and merchandising stints with 
the Capitol, Warner Bros, (regional 
sales manager) and Verve (national 
sales manager) labels. Chirumbulo is 
expected to have a big say in what 
kind of product is to be recorded for 
maximum sales potential. He will 
therefore work closely with Prestige’s 
A&R men. 

In addition to the above appoint- 
ments, the label has established a 
field force designed to blanket the 
country. Heading the regional sales 
operations is Ron Eyre, east coast; 
Jerry Field, southeast; George Ba- 
donsky, midwest. Coming up soon is 
a west coast sales manager. 

The overall concept of stretching 
out to new markets is less, but more 
diversified product. Bob Weinstock, 
president of the label, wants to 
achieve this goal while maintaining 
and developing further the company’s 
respected jazz image. 

In line with this aim, the label is 
putting greater emphasis in the folk 
and foreign markets. As far as the 
folk field is concerned, Weinstock 
says that the growth of folk idiom 
over the past three of four years 
among college students has put jazz 
in a secondary spotlight on many 
campuses. And when Weinstock talks 
folk he makes a point to include “eth- 
nic” folk, which he believes got the 
attention of the college market follow, 
ing the success of the more commer- 
cial folk groups (e.g. Kingston Trio, 
Peter, Paul & Mary). 

This “ethnic” growth has extended 
itself, Weinstock declares, to an in- 
terest in foreign product that repre- 
sents a particular area in regards to 
music that is indiginous to a parti- 
cular locale, rather than a pop studio- 
made sessions. 

To provide such material in the

ERICH 

LEINSDORF 


LEONTYNE 

PRICE 


NEW YORK — RCA Victor Records 
and the Boston Symphony Orchestra 
has announced plans to record a con- 
cert version of Wagner’s “Lohengrin” 
at Symphony Hall in August 1965, 
with Erich Leinsdorf conducting. 

The event will be marked by a sig- 
nificant first in that it will be the first 
time since the days of Toscanini & 
the NBC Symphony that an American 
Orchestra will participate in an opera 
recording, and the first time soprano 
Leontyne Price will sing a Wagnerian 
role. 

The principal singers in addition to 
Miss Price are Sandor Konya and 
Jerome Hines. 

Erich Leinsdorf is a renowned opera 
conductor, both in opera houses and 
on recordings, including “Barber Of 
Serville,” “Madame Butterfly,” “Tur-

CHIRUMBOLO HERLICH 


U.S., Weinstock has already made a 
deal with EMI for the release of re- 
cordings from India, the first four of 
which are due to be marketed here 
on or about June 1. 

Pop expansion has gone as far as 
rock ’n roll. This has included the 
naming of Ed Townsend as A&R 
director of pop and R&B product, and 
having an eye out on indie master 
deaTs involving teen-oriented dates.

Kapp Rushes "Dolly" LP 

NEW YORK — Great production speed 
was the order of the day at Kapp 
Records in getting out its “Hello, 
Dolly” LP by Louis Armstrong last 
week. 

The “live” recording, at the Riviera 
Hotel in Las Vegas, was completed 
by label vp Mickey Kapp on Sat., 
April 11 at about 3:30 in the after- 
noon. Initial editing took place until 
6PM and by 1AM Sunday morning 
the tapes were on their way to New 
York. Dave Kapp was on hand at the 
airport in the wee hours of the morn- 
ing to greet the arrival of the Kapp 
personnel. More editing on Sunday, 
mixing on Monday and shipping on 
Thursday completed the rush act. 

Besides the “Hello, Dolly” number, 
Armstrong’s great singles come-back, 
the LP includes such other showtunes 
as “Hey, Look Me Over,” “I Still Get 
Jealous” and “You Are Woman” 
(from “Funny Girl”). In addition, 
there are such all-time Armstrong 
favorites as “Blueberry Hill” and 
“Give Me A Kiss To Build A Dream 
On.” 

In commenting on the upcoming al- 
bum in last week’s issue, it was er- 
roneously stated that the hit single 
of the same name had been a master 
nurchase bv Kapp. Actually, Mickey 
Kapp recorded the side. It seems that 
the idea for an Armstrong version of 
the song had been turned down by a 
number of labels. 

According to A1 Cahn. Kapp’s na- 
tional sales manager, “Orders are so 
heavy that it’s almost impossible to 
keep un with them.” He reports that 
orders in excess of 100,000 units were 
in prior to the record’s release. 


ABC-Par Acquires 
"Cindy" Cast LP 

NEW YORK — ABC-Paramount Rec- 
ords, beginning to make its presence 
felt in the cast LP field, has acquired 
the LP rights to “Cindy,” an Off- 
B’way musical production now play- 
ing at the Gate Theatre. 

A contemporary version of “Cin- 
derella,” the show features Jacqueline 
Mayro, Johnny Harmon, Sylvia Mann, 
Lizabeth Pritchett, Thelma Oliver, 
Joseph Masiell, Dena Dietrich and 
Amelia Varney. 

Music and lyrics are by native Lon- 
doner Johnny Brandon, who is making 
his U.S. bow as a stage writer. 

“Cindy,” tentatively set to be cut 
this week (20), is ABC-Par’s third 
musical cast LP of the 1963-64 sea- 
son. Just released was the well-re- 
ceived “High Spirits” and due soon 
is Carol Burnett’s “Fade Out — Fade 


andot” and others. 


In.” 


NARAS Awards Point To Philips’ Growth 


NEW YORK — Although just a bit 
more than a two-year-old label, an 
infant as far as record companies go, 
Philips Records has made a very 
adult showing in two major categories 
of the NARAS (National Academy of 
Recording Arts and Sciences) Gram- 
my awards for 1963. 

In the Best Album of the Year ca- 
tegory, Philips placed two in the five 
finalists: “Bach’s Greatest Hits” by 
the Swingle Singers and “The Sing- 
ing Nun” album by Soeur Sourire. 

In the Best Single category, the 
“Dominique” recording by Soeur Sou- 
rire was chosen as one of the five 
finalists. 

But the NARAS nominations show 
only one aspect of the tremendous 
strides the young Philips label has 
made in the past two years. 

Since its formation, the label has 
diversified in so many varied musical 
directions that it is probably the most 
solid new label formed in the disk 
industry in the past half decade. 

At the onset, it depended almost 
completely on the product from its 
European parent company. Even some 
of its early singles featured European 
artists. But today it has so many 
different musical aspects coming 
through for it that even if one die's 


Tollie Releases 
Beatles 1 "Love Me Do" 

NEW YORK — The Beatles have added 
another chapter to their historic and 
often confusing triumph in the U.S. 

Get this: Tollie Records, the affili- 
ate of the Vee Jay label, has just re- 
leased the Beatles disking of “Love 
Me Do,” which had been available 
(and getting chart action) on the 
Capitol of Canada label. 

Since it is understood that Capitol 
of Canada is no longer producing the 
“Love Me Do” side and since Vee Jay 
and Capitol recently settled their 
legal dispute over Beatles products 
(see last week’s issue), Tollie appar- 
ently can go ahead with the release, 
but, under the Vee Jay-Capitol settle- 
ment, will have to dish-out royalties 
to Capitol on sales of the session. 


CRDC Names Taylor To 
New Eastern Rack Post 

HOLLYWOOD — Bob Taylor has been 
named to the new post of eastern rack 
sales manager at Capitol Records Dis- 
tributing Corp., according to Bill Tal- 
lant, national sales manager. 

Taylor, sales head of CRDC’s Bos- 
ton branch since 1957, reports directly 
to Max Callison, national rack sales 
manager. 

Taylor joined CRDC as a sales rep 
in Boston in 1952. A replacement for 
him has not yet been named. 

Both Callison and Taylor are rep- 
resenting CRDC at this week’s rack- 
jobber convention in Miami Beach, as 
will Alan Livingston, president; Stan 
Gortikov, vp and general manager 
and Tallant. 


Liberty & Subsids 
Riding With 8 Singles 

LOS ANGELES — Liberty Records 
and its subsid labels, Imperial and 
Dolton, are currently clicking on the 
Top 100 with eight decks, with others 
headed that way, according to nation- 
al promo director Ted Feigin. 

As of this week, the diskery is rep- 
resented on the charts with two Jan 
& Dean issues tagged “Dead Man’s 
Curve” and “New Girl In School,” and 
with “Hippy Hippy Shake” by the 
Swingin’ Blue Jeans, “Wish Someone 
Would Care” by Irma Thomas, “Shan- 
gri-La” by Vic Dana, “Little Children” 
by Billy J. Kramer & Dakotas, “Just 
One Look” by the Hollies, and “Sugar 
And Spice” by the Searchers. 


out, the company will not be dramatic- 
ally effected. 

The company has built a “class” 
image with such product as the “Sing- 
ing Nun” LP’s and other albums in 
its $4.98-$5.98 Connoiseur Series of 
deluxe albums including its “Missa 
Luba” best seller. It has also built a 
solid classical catalog, showing again 
the many advantages of the label’s 
close ties with its European parent 
company. 

In the pop field, the international 
ties of the American indie are also 
much in evidence. Just as the Singing 
Nun album came from Belgium, the 
Swingle Singers’ hit album came from 
the label’s French affiliate. And in the 
singles end, the hit Dusty Springfield 
single, “I Only Want To Be With 
You” came from the label’s British 
outlet. 

But aside from international ties, 
the solid financial backing has also 
afforded Philips the means to go after 
such artists as the Four Seasons, who 
have already scored handsomely for 
the label, giving the company a com- 
mercial pop dimension so necessary 
in keeping the name of the company 
on everyone’s lips, every minute of 
the record day. The success of the 
Four Seasons brought the Philips 
name home to the teenagers with the 
group’s “Dawn” single and now the 
LP follow-up as well as their new 
single “Ronnie.” 

In the jazz area it has done ex- 
tremely well, bringing Woody Her- 
man product to new heights. 

But in the past few weeks, with 
the success of the new folk group 
known as the Serendipity Singers in 
both the single and album fields with 
their “Don’t Let The Rain Come 
Down (Crooked Little Man)” hit, the

Vanguard Bows "Everyman" 
Line; Barbirolli Sets 

NEW YORK — Vanguard has intro- 
duced its new Everyman Classic se- 
ries with five recordings by conductor 
Sir John Barbirolli and the Halle 
Orchestra. The label’s new budget line 
highlights catalog variety by impor- 
tant classical artists. The sets are 
priced at $1.98 for mono and $2.98 
for stereo. 

The first five issues by Barbirolli 
and the Halle Orchestra are the 
“First Symphony” by Sibelius, the 
“London Symphony” by Vaughn Wil- 
liams, the “Fourth Symphony & 
Scherzo Canriccioso” by Dvorak, and 
Brahms’ “Double Concerto.” The line 
will also include re-issues of sets for- 
merly available at a higher price. 


"Kelly" Gets New Backers, 
Columbia Invests $50,000 

NEW YORK— The backers of “Kelly,” 
a musical due on Broadway this Sept., 
have changed hands. Putting a $50,000 
stake in the show is Columbia Rec- 
ords, which will have the original- 
cast LP. 

The new producing group involves 
a partnership of Joseph E. Levine, 
the big movie producer (Embassy 
Pictures), David Susskind and Daniel 
Melnick of Talent Associates-Para- 
mount Ltd. film and TV production 
outfit. While all three have a working 
agreement with Paramount Pictures, 
the picture company will not be in- 
volved in the film version, which the 
three partners will sponsor. 

The musical, book and lyrics by 
Eddie Lawrence and music by Moose 
Charlap, is expected to cost about 
$400,000 to put on stage, with $250,000 
coming from Levine and the rest from 
seven other sponsors. 

The show is described as a parody 
of the 1880’s and a combination “Guys 
and Dolls” and “Three Penny Opera.” 
Its original producers were Edward 
Padula, Herbert Greene and Joseph 
Harris and Ira Bernstein.

Pick of the Week 


‘BAD NEWS” (2:17) [Anthony Knowles— Darnold ASCAP— Key] 
“ON THE MOVE” (2:33) [Bangar BMI] 


THE TRASHMEN (Garrett 4005) 


The Trashmen, who now have a pair of chart triumphs in “Surfin’ 
Bird” and “Bird Dance Beat,” can make it three in-a-row with this new 
one. Although it’s tagged “Bad News,” it’s a bright novelty that takes a 
zany hard-rock, mostly-instrumental route. Fellas are “On The Move” 
on the hard-hitting all-instrumental flip. 


‘KIKO” [Saturn, Renner, Jell BMI — McGriff] 


“JUMPIN’ AT THE WOODSIDE” 
[Bregman, Vocco & Conn ASCAP — Basie, Hendricks] 


JIMMY McGRIFF (Sue 10-001) 


Organist McGriff and his combo are good bets for another solid chart 
run, a la their “I Got A Woman” date. It’s a steady driving funky-blues 
McGriff original, tabbed “Kiko,” that’s loaded with money-making 
potential. Backing’s a high-flying, way-out revival of the swing-era 
oldie. 


“DEAR ONE, PART TWO” (2:30) [Seven Brothers BMI— Finneran] 


*1 


/ 

v' 


“BE ANYTHING (BUT BE MINE)” (2:08) 
[Shapiro-Bernstein ASCAP — Gordon] 

“TOMMY” (2:35) [Merna BMI— Hunter, Vincent] 

CONNIE FRANCIS (MGM 13237) 

Connie follows her recent money-maker, “Blue Winter,” with a 
charmer from the evergreen dept, that looks like more money-in-the- 
bank for all concerned. Tune, “Be Anything (But Be Mine),” is currently 
making the wax rounds once again and Connie’s most attractive per- 
formance should send it way back up the hit ladder. Top quality shuffle- 
ballad ork-choral support from Alan Lorber. The inviting, beat-ballad 
Stan Vincent-arranged hip-swinger devoted to “Tommy” also has the 
sound hits are made of. 


“ONCE UPON A TIME” (2:29) 

[Jobete BMI — Paul, Hamilton, Stevenson] 

“WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH YOU BABY” (2:20) 

[Jobete BMI — Paul, Stevenson] 

MARVIN GAYE & MARY WELLS (Motown 1057) 

Two of the label’s hottest artists, Marvin Gaye & Mary Wells, are 
teamed up in winning fashion on a most attractive shuffle-beat cha cha 
romancer, tabbed “Once Upon A Time.” Excellent instrumental show- 
case on a deck that’s in their “Together” LP. Also from the same pack- 
age is infectious rhythmic cha cha “What’s The Matter With You Baby” 
that makes for a potent companion piece. 

“(HEART) SKIN” (2:20) [Frank ASCAP— Adler, Ross] 

“THE DROP-OUTS MARCH” (2:46) 

[Curtain Call ASCAP — Sherman, Busch] 

ALLAN SHERMAN (Warner Bros. 5436) 

Song-spoofer Sherman offers another one of his rib-tickling parodies 
that can make the chart grade in no time flat. This time he takes the 
engaging “Damn Yankees” hit, “Heart,” and tells why it’s necessary to 
have skin. School drop-outs are the subject of his mach-time coupler. 
Both cuts are from Sherman’s “Allan In Wonderland” LP chart hit. 

“HURT BY LOVE” (2:35) [Saturn BMI— Foxx] 
“CONFUSION” (2:30) [Saturn BMI— I. & J. Foxx, Murray] 
INEZ FOXX (Symbol 20-001) 

It’s more than likely that Inez Foxx will be grabbing chart headlines 
in the coming weeks. It’s a contagious pop-blues rocker, labeled “Hurt 
By Love,” that moves along at an infectious quick beat clip. The delect- 
able thump-a-beat cha cha coupler’s from her “Mockingbird” LP. Brother 
Charlie’s the male voice happily joining in on both ends. 

“ODIE COLOGNE (EAU DE COLOGNE)” (2:36) 

[Claridge, Halseon ASCAP — Boulanger, Heard] 

“O.K. WHEELER, THE USED CAR DEALER” (2:30) 

[Claridge, Halseon ASCAP — Slay, Darrow] 

FREDDIE CANNON (Warner Bros. 5434) 

Cannon, who came thru in solid chart style with his WB bow, “Abigail 
Beecher,” can have a coin-catching follow-up in this newie tagged “Odie 
Cologne.” It’s a catchy rock-a-twist’er that’s right up the teener’s alley. 
More strong rock-a-teen stuff on the flip. 

“GOOD GOLLY MISS MOLLY” (2:03) 

[Venice BMI — Blackwell, Marascalco] 

“SHAKING FEELING” (2:09) 

[Bourne-Rank ASCAP — Ennis, Ellis, Kuhlke, Braid] 

THE SWINGING BLUE JEANS (Imperial 66030) 

The English group appears to have a big follow-up to their inter- 
national success, “Hippy Hippy Shake.” This time, it’s the years-back 
Little Richard smash, “Good Golly Miss Molly,” that the artists take for 
a sock-rock ‘Liverpool’ sounding ride. More winning teen sounds on the 
driving undercut. 


“ALL I DO IS DREAM OF YOU” (2:05) 

[Robbins ASCAP — Freed, Brown] 

“TOMORROW” (2:41) [Four Star Sales BMI— Knight] 

CHRIS CROSBY (MGM 13234) 

Crosby, who broke thru the hit barrier with his previous MGM out- 
ing, “Young And In Love,” can duplicate that success with this new 
stand. It’s the delightful oldie, “All I Do Is Dream Of You,” that Chris 
cha cha’s thru in contagious dual-track manner. Backing’s a pretty, 
soft beat single-track cha cha with a country flavor. Potent Bill Mc- 
Elhiney backdrops. 

“BILL BAILEY” (2:05) “WHEN THE SAINTS GO 

[T.M. BMI— Cannon, Arr: Amato] MARCHIN’ IN” (2:10) 

[T.M. BMI — Trade. Arr: Amato] 
WAYNE NEWTON (Capitol 5171) 

Here’s two swinging performances that the platters spinners will 
cotton to. It’s Wayne Newton wailing a pair of old-timers, “Bill Bailey” 
and “Saints,” on an in-person nite club session. Sensational Tommy 
Amato arrangements back up Wayne’s spirited vocal efforts. 



“BATON ROUGE” (2:20) [Csida BMI— Finneran] 

LARRY FINNEGEN (RIC S104) 

The brand new RIC label, headed by Joe Csida, can make the grade 
with one of the initial releases. This one’s by Larry Finnegan, who had 
a short-while-back click with “Dear One” (on Old Town), and it’s a 
potent sequal, tabbed “Dear One, Part Two,” that Larry jumps thru in 
twistin’ country-styled (partly) multi-tracked format. The enticing 
rock-a-shuffle underlid also rates attention. 


Newcomer Picks 


“CHAPEL OF LOVE” (2:45) [Trio BMI — Barry, Greenwich, Spector] 
“AIN’T THAT NICE” (2:20) [Trio, Melder BMI— Johnson] 

THE DIXIE CUPS (Red Bird 10-001) 

The new Leiber-Stoller label can have a first-time-out giant with this 
deck that bows the Dixie Cups. Side’s a captivating shuffle-rhythm toe- 
tapper, labeled “Chapel Of Love,” that the femmes serve up in ear- 
arresting fashion. Coupler’s a dandy rock-a-twist effort. 


“EITHER WAY I LOSE” (2:23) “WHY DON’T YOU LOVE ME” 
[Blackwood BMI — McCoy] (2:53) [Blackwood BMI — McCoy] 

TERI THORNTON (Columbia 43027) 

This could be the canary’s most important deck to date. Both tunes, 
“Either Way I Lose” and “Why Don’t You Love Me,” are powerful 
pieces of material that Teri puts across with telling effect. Former’s a 
lovely weeper that sports a fine Belford C. Hendricks arrangements 
while the latter’s a pulsating beat-ballad pleader that features an equally 
outstanding arrangement by Garry Sherman. Great double-header. 


“A WORLD WITHOUT LOVE” (2:38) 

[Northern Songs Ltd. ASCAP — Lennon, McCartney] 

“IF I WERE YOU” (2:27) [Noel Gay Ltd. ASCAP— Asher, Waller] 
PETER AND GORDON (Capitol 5175) 

Still another English combo hits the U.S. wax scene with a deck 
chock full of chart-making ingredients. Here it’s teenagers Peter & 
Gordon serving up a tantalizing, easy-beat thumper, tabbed “A World 
Without Love” (cleffed by two Beatles) and currently zooming up the 
charts in Great Britain. More intriguing cha cha beat sounds on the 
flip. Top notch musical support from Geoff Love. 


“I REALLY LOVE YOU” (2:07) [Ampar BMI— Shepherd] 

“ROSEMARIE” (2:33) [Steary BMI— Shepherd] 

JOHNNIE SHEPHERD (ABC-Paramount 10548) 

Newcomer Johnnie Shepherd displays both his singing and writing 
talents in top calibre fashion on this ABC outing. It’s a quick-moving, 
‘South-of-the-border’-styled delighter, tagged “I Really Love You,” that 
Johnnie & his combo-choral support knock out in happy-go-lucky style. 
Backing’s a pleasant beat-ballad stint.

THE MURMAIDS 
(Chattahoochee 650) 

• “BULL TALK” (2:20) 

[Thirty-Seven, Etnoc ASCAP 

— Friedman] The Murmaids, who 
gained national popularity with their 
“Popsicles And Icicles” smash, have 
an easy-going play-on-words session 
here. The gimmick is to add the word 
bull to the endings of the original 
lyrics. Eye-bull it-bull for-bull big- 
bull sales-bull. 

• “WILD AND WONDERFUL” 

(2:24) [Haymarket-Conte BMI 

— Raleigh, Barkan] The gals play it 
straight on this side and do a top 
notch rock number aided by strong 
ork backing. Can get turnable spins. 

BIG DEE IRWIN (Dimension 1028) EARL-JEAN (Colpix 729) 


PATTI PAGE (Columbia 43019) 

• “DRIVE IN MOVIE” (2:31) 
[Roosevelt-BMI — Rogers. 

Tansey, Colacrai] Patti Page could 
make a quick return to the charts 
with this pop-country item she sur 
veys in best-selling “Doggy” fashion, 
It’s Nashville all the way with 
funky harmonica and sans-lyric choral 
backdrop. Eye this one for early air- 
play & sales. 

• “I’D RATHER BE SORRY 
(THAN SAFE ALL ALONE)” 

(2:35) [A1 Gallico-BMI — Kilgore, 

Talley] The lark remains in the 
Nashville groove on this end as she 
warmly warbles a melodic ballad 
weeper that could also make it. 


• “HEIGH-HO” (2:34) [Bourne 
ASCAP— Churchill, Morey] 

Big Dee Irwin, who had a big hit with 
“Swingin’ On A Star,” offers another 
delightful oldie done in similar style. 
Can step way out. 

(B-f) “I WANT SO MUCH TO 
KNOW YOU” (2:50) [Screen 
Gems, Columbia BMI — Kaufman, 

Ervin, Willingham.] 


ROUND ROBIN (Domain 1404) 

• “KICK THAT LITTLE FOOT 
SALLY ANN” (2:24) [Screen 
Gems-Columbia BMI — Sloane, Barri] 
Round Robin, of “Slauson” note, can 
make an even bigger chart impression 
this time out. Artist, joined in top 
teen fashion by the Jack Nitzsche- 
led ork choral group, brightly socks 
out an enticing jump’er that can 
spread like wildfire. It’s a London- 
handled label. 

(B+) “SLAUSON PARTY” (2:05) 
[Al-Mar, Krasnow, Sepe 

ASCAP — Brooks, Krasnow, Sepe, 

Ashe] 


• “I’M INTO SOMETHING 
GOOD” (2:38) [Screen Gems 
Columbia BMI — Goffin, King] New- 
comer Earl- Jean can break thru with 
her Colpix debut, a steady-paced 
shuffle-rock’er that she serves up in 
tasty, low-key fashion. Haunting 
sound that could be all over the 
airwaves in the weeks to come. 

(B+) “WE LOVE AND LEARN” 
(2:25) [Screen Gems-Colum- 
bia BMI — Goffin, King] 


BRIAN HYLAND 
(ABC Paramount 10549) 

• “ACT NATURALLY” (2:42) 
[Blue Book BMI — Russell, 

Morrison] Hyland growls out the 
lyrics supported by a good bluegrass 
sounding banjo. This hard rocker, 
from his days with ABC could make 
the songster return to the chart 
scene. Watch it for quick air play. 

• “OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF 
MIND” (2:16) [Geld-Udell 

ASCAP — Geld, Udell] The artist plays 
it cool on backside, offering a soothing 
tearjerker ballad. Deck can attract 
attention. 


MICHEL LEGRAND (Philips 40188) 

• “COME RAY COME 

CHARLES” (2:35) [Dundee 
BMI — Legrand] The Frenchman leads 
his fine instrumentalists thru an un- 
usually commercial entry in the 
singles dept. Date’s a sensational 
rock-a-string tribute to Ray Charles- 
with a repeating “What’d I Say” 
like riff throughout. Sans lyric choral 
chants add to the deck’s chart 
potential. 

(B) “MONKEY BUSINESS” 

(2:35) [Dundee BMI— Le- 

grand] 


JULIUS LA ROSA (Cadence 1444) 

• “JE” (2:30) [Flanka ASCAP 
— Stillamn] LaRosa’s fine 

vocal talents are heard to good ad- 
vantage on this pop swing sound with 
terrific bongo support in backing. 
Deck can get loads of play, especially 
on good music stations. 

(B+) “GONNA BUILD A MOUN- 
TAIN” (2:15) [Ludlow BMI— 
Bricusse, Newley] 


BIG AL DOWNING (Columbia 43028) 

• “I’M JUST NOBODY” (2:20) 
[Blackwood, Kansoma-BMI] 

Big A1 Downing debuts on Columbia 
with this soulful, bluesy r&b tune. 
The chanter’s warm, appealing de- 
livery is from the oh-so-smooth Brook 
Benton school and could carry him to 
some heavy sales in the r&b and pop 
markets. 

• “ALL I WANT IS YOU” 
(2:38) [Valley-BMI] On this 

end the songster wails in the tradi- 
tional gospel fashion to tell his gal, 
“All I Want Is You.” It’s loaded with 
“soul” and could happen. 


TOMMY DUNCAN (Falew 104) 

“DANCE, DANCE, DANCE” 
(2:17) [Knick-Knack, Backus 
BMI — Harper, Duncan] It’s a good 
bet that Tommy Duncan will get the 
new N.Y.-based Falew label off and 
winging with this potent bow. It’s a 
dandy stomp-a-twist’er that the 
artist (partly) multi-tracks with tell- 
ing effects. Sock instrumentation adds 
to the deck’s potential. 

(B-f) “LET’S TRY IT OVER 
AGAIN” (2:20) [Knick- 
Knack BMI — Harper, Duncan] 


THE CAJUNS (Shah 175) 

• “BIG DADDY OF THE 
BAYOU” (2:22) [Crock-BMI 
— Hildebrand, Housey] The Cajuns 
could capture some pop attention for 
this folksy-country served up with a 
rapid-beat backdrop. The vocal ap- 
proach is peppered with hillbilly but 
very effective. Good airplay seems 
assured. 

(B-f) “NO OTHER BABY” (2:09) 
[BMI — Hildebrand, Channel] 


BOBBY CHARLES (Jewel 729) 

• “I HOPE (2:10 [Bar-Mar- 
BMI — Guidry, Lewis] Bobby 
Charles returns to the wax scene via 
this Shreveport based label and can 
score heavily with the spinners and 
buyers with this blues-tinged, easy- 
paced r&b item. The chanter’s warm 
and easy-going approach makes for 
good listening. 

(B-f) “GOODNITE IRENE (2:35) 
[Bar-Mar-BMI — Trad] 


FREDDY CANNON (Swan 4178) THE OFF-BEATS (Guyden 2101) 


• “IT’S BEEN NICE” (2:00) 
[Rumbalero-BMI — Pomus — 

Shuman] Swan reaches into its cata- 
log and comes up with this tough, 
infectious rocker by Cannon. Rem- 
iniscent of his oldie, “Palisades Park,” 
this baby could take a ride up the 
charts. Eye it carefully. 

• “UPS AND DOWNS OF 
LOVE” [Rumbalero-BMI— 

Pomus-Shuman] This could be a 
double-sided success for the songster. 
This jumper should have the teens 
clapping their hands. Both sides of 
the deck are from the flick “Just For 
Fun.” 

PETER DUCHIN (Decca 25632) 

• “STAR DUST” (2:40) [Mills- 
ASCAP — Carmichael, Parish] 

Here’s another in Decca’s juke-box 
series that could happen in the retail 
markets in the Sammy Kaye 
“Charade” manner. Duchin’s tradi- 
tional arrangement is liltingly en- 
hanced by string ork and choral 
backdrop. Plenty of coin to be pulled 
with this one. 

(B+) “I WISH YOU LOVE” (3:05) 
[Leeds-ASCAP — Trenet, Wil- 
son] 

KING GUION 
(Canadian American 170) 

• “MONTE CARLO” (2:20) 
[T.M.-BMI — Farina] Here’s 

an infectious instrumental from King 
Guion that happily lies half-way be- 
tween Mr. Bilk’s “Harem” and “From 
Russia With Love” — easy-paced for 
dancing, the tune is a good bet for 
the jocks, ops and retail trade. 

(B-f) “WHILE WE’RE DANCING” 
(1:45) [One O Clock-BMI — 

Malis] 


• “HAVE LOVE WILL 
TRAVEL” (2:30) [Limax 
BMI — Berry] Here’s another from the 
pen of Richard Berry who gave us 
“Louie, Louie,” this time by the Off' 
Beats. It’s got the same infectious 
ear-captivating quality that coulc 
send it chartsville with a little help 
from the deejays. 

(B-f) “DOODLUM” (1:30) [Nujac. 
Fame-BMI — Briggs] 


THE PANDORAS (Imperial 66029) 

• “ALL ABOUT JIM” (2:50) 
[Rittenhouse-BMI— Robinsoff 
The Pandoras could strike paydirt 
with this beat ballad geared to the 
delight of the teen dance crowd. Top 
40 spinners should be on it in short 
order. 

(B+) “HEY AH” (2:37) [Ritten 
house-BMI — Meade, Raleigh] 


CHRIS KENNER (Instant 3265) 

• “ANYBODY HERE SEE MY 
BABY” (2:10) [JARB BMI— 
Kenner] The songster has had hits in 
the past and he can pull lots a loot 
with this rousing, chorus-backed pop- 
r&b rollicking lament with an in- 
fectious, repeating melodic riff. 

(B) “SHE CAN DANCE” (2:10) 
[JARB BMI— Kenner] 


TOMMY LEONETTI 

(RCA Victor 8353) 

• “THREE HEARTACHES 
FOR A QUARTER” (2:15) 
[Screen Gems-Col-BMI — Karliski, 

Kolber] Tommy Leonetti has his most 
commercial-sounding opus to date 
with this country-flavored tune served 
up in lilting rock-a-string. The 
chanter’s big, warm-voiced delivery 
smoothly enhances these schmaltzy 
lyrics. This could be the moneymaker 
for Leonetti. 

(B+) “WALK DON’T RUN (2:09) 
[Forshay-BMI — Smith, Faye] 


DEE DEE WARWICK (Tiger 103) 

• “STANDING BY” (2:30) 
[Trio BMI — McCoy] The tune, 
already getting sales action, has a 
solid r&b-pop sound. Lark’s belting 
and screaming out the lyrics makes 
the outing a sure-fire noise-maker. 
Excellent arrangements by Bert 
Keyes. 

(B-f) “DON’T THINK MY BABY’S 
COMING BACK” (2:45) 
[Trio-BMI — McCoy] 


NANCY ADAMS (RCA Victor 8354) 

• “SOMEBODY’S IN MY OR- 
CHARD” (2:11) [Laurel- 
ASCAP — Huddleston] Nancy Adams 
impressively premiers on RCA Victor 
with this easy-listening jazz-oriented 
tune sparked by some “way-out” 
lyrics that prove a natural showcase 
for her top-drawer delivery. Reminis- 
cent of Peggy Lee’s “Fever,” the lark 
should attract wide attention with this 
one. 

(B-f) “YOU’VE GOT TO SHOW 
ME” (1:59) [Laurel-ASCAP 
— Huddleston, Rinker] 


THE RIBBONS (Parkway 912) 

• “MELODIED’AMORE” 
(2:48) [Rayven-BMI — Salva- 
dor — Johns] Artists belt this oldie of 
the Ames Bros, out in true rock 
fasion. The slop beat along with the 
catchy melody should catch on with 
the teens. The Ribbons have a good 
chance to wrap up a hit. 

(B+) “THEY PLAYED A SAD 
SONG” (2:40) [Wayde-BMI— 

Mack] 


CHIP TAYLOR (Mala 476) 

• “ON MY WORLD” (2:38) 

[Sea Lark-BMI — Taylor] 
Songster Taylor has a beauty with 
this catchy rocker. In a style that has 
a smooth flavor of Rick Nelson, the 
chanter takes off with this pretty 
melody. Check this one for spins and 
sales. 

(B) “JOANIE’S BLUES” (2:20) 

[Sea Lark-BMI — Taylor] 


DARLENE TERRI (Columbia 81725) 

• “RINGO, RINGO” (2:04) [A1 
Gallico-BMI — Sawyer] Dar- 

lene Terri bows on Columbia with this 
sparkling handclapper dedicated to 
her number one Beatle, Ringo. It’s a 
teen-angled dance delighter done to 
the tune of Reuben, Reuben. Plenty 
of youthful exuberance here coupled 
with an ultra-commercial sounds. 
(B-f) “A REAL LIVE BOY” (2:07) 
[Pambar-BMI — Sawyer, Bar- 
kan] 


VIC THOMAS (Philips 40183) 

• “MARIANNE” (2:08) 

[Seventh Ave.-BMI — Thomas] 
This Four Seasons flavored stomp 
should excite the rock and roll set. 
It’s a contagious rocker that has the 
commercial ingredients needed to take 
it for a ride on the charts. Keep your 
eye on it. 

(B) “NAPOLEON BONAPARTE” 

(2:21) [Seventh Ave.-BMI— 
Thomas]

RAMONA KING (Warner Bros. 5432) 

• “YOU SAY PRETTY 
WORDS” (2:16) [Screen 

Gems-Columbia — BMI — Sloan, Barri] 
A flashy ear-catching drum roll 
opens this happy number. Ramona 
King who had some action on her 
version of the “Shoop Shoop Song,” 
belts out this infectious stomp with 
real feeling. The multi-tracked re- 
cording should attract attention with 
the teen set.

RIP TAYLOR (Colpix 728) 

• “HOW DOES IT FEEL” 
(2:07) [Marimba ASCAP — 

Weiss, Sherman] Comic Rip Taylor, 
who’s made the grade via his ‘crying’ 
routines, bows on Colpix with a deck 
that’s chock full of laughs. Platter 
spinners’ll have a field day with this 
part-laugh, part-sing affair. Dandy 
Joe Sherman ork-choral arrangement.

MOODY & DELTAS (Daisy 504) 

• “MONKEY CLIMB” (2:10) 
[Trio-Melder BMI — Terry,

could have a hit on their hands with 
this hard-driving, rhythmic bluser 
which intros a new dance. Plenty of 
potential here.

EDDIE RAMBEAU 
(20th Century Fox 491) 

• “COME CLOSER (2:19) [To- 
morrow’s Tunes BMI — An- 
drews] Here’s a thumping twist 
handclapper that could put Eddie 
Rambeau on the wax map. Terrific 
vocal-instrumental arrangement, sup- 
plied by Calello, for Eddie’s sparkling 
multi-track Neil Sedaka-flavored de- 
livery.

YVONNE CARROLL (Vee Jay 3937) 

• “PLEASE DON’T GO” (2:03) 
[Screen Gems-Columbia-BMI 

— Sloan — Barri] The lark introduces 
this strong slop with loads of feeling. 
Effective choral backing adds to the 
commerciality of the deck. This one 
should reach the younger set, so eye 
it.

JOHNNY WYATT (Challenge 59242) 

• “HANG UP THE PHONE” 
(2:10) [4 Star-BMI— Wyatt] 

Johnny Wyatt’s deep, rich voice is 
effectively showcased on this rhythmic 
folk-oriented ballad. The tune is a 
happy amalgam of folk, blues, and 
r&b that makes it acceptable in 
several markets. The side merits dee-

NEW YORK: 

Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, 
Gene Krupa and Teddy Wilson were 
feted at a cocktail party-press con- 
ference last week (15) where they 
discussed plans for their forthcoming 
Carnegie Hall concert on May 6, a 
benefit for the Wiltwyck School for 
Boys, near Syracuse. This will mark 
the first public appearance by the 
famed quartet in many years, with 
Benny Goodman coming out of retire- 
ment for the affair. . . Lou Rawls, 
Capitol’s powerhouse blues singer, has 
a new single on the label tagged, “The 
House Next Door,” that could cata- 
pult the chanter to a whole new mar- 
ket. The side is a departure in format 
for the singer and has a commercial 
quality that could make it happen, 
accoi-ding to label execs and Lou’s 
manager, Lee Magid. Lee’s gal Friday, 
Judy Kyle, also tells us that Clyde 
McPhatter will be recorded “live” at 
the Apollo, for a quick follow-up to 
his current Mercury LP, “Songs Of 
The Big City.” . . . A1 Hirt scored a 
quick second stanza success with his 
“Cotton Candy” etching on Victor to 
come up with a happy foursome, 2 
LP’s and 2 singles on the charts. . . . 
Angela Martin, the singing ventrilo- 
quist, has come of age and will ven- 
ture into her first supper club en- 
gagement at the Hotel Syracuse in 
Syracuse, N.Y. 

Several recent RCA Victor dis- 
coveries are scoring in a variety of 
areas. The Womenfolk have scored 
an immediate success with their new 
LP tagged after themselves, and are 
booked into the hungry in San Fran- 
cisco for four weeks. Gale Garnett,, 
who recently debuted with her album 
of folk songs has been promised an 


important role in an upcoming seg- 
ment of the “Ben Casey” TV’er. . . . 
Composer Johnny Green, a ’63 Acad- 
emy Award nominee for his sound- 
track LP for, “Bye Bye Birdie,” didn’t 
cop the Oscar but did get the Global 
Disk Award, signifying it was the 
most requested and played LP on 
Armed Forces Radio stations around 
the world. . . . Andy Williams is 
skedded for a whirlwind cross country 
tour that will take him to cities in the 
Midwest, the East and Canada. 
Andy’s currently making some noise 
with his new Columbia single, “Wrong 
For Each Other.” . . . Serrafyn, the 
traveling minstrel, has bowed on Co- 
lumbia with an LP, and will go to 
Europe this summer after a series of 
personal appearances here. 

Publishing credits on U.A.’s “One 
Girl” by Garnett Mimms & the En- 
chanters should go to Robert Mellin 
and Rittenhouse. . . . This column last 
week printed Rip Taylor’s picture 
without explanation. Rip has signed 
a wax pact with Colpix and has a 
debut single tagged “How Does It 
Feel” backed with “The Grapevine.” 
The deck was produced by Joe Sher- 
man and Geo. D. Weiss who’ve signed 
a producing pact with the label. . . . 
Ken Greengrass, manager of the High- 
waymen has announced the folksters 
will discontinue personal appearances 
after June 1 of this year. The group, 
all of whom have education plans and 
show biz careers, will continue cutting 
for U.A. and be available for TV 
shots. . . . Don Costa is one of the 
busiest disk men around what with 
trips to the Coast to prep material 
for Sinatra, produce a Trini Lopez 
LP, and arranging Danny Williams 
sessions here in the East. . . . Kathy 
Keegan is being considered for the 


soundtrack warbling on the title tune 
from “Tell Me In The Sunlight.” 

Chico Hamilton is coming in from 
the West Coast for a two week stand 
at the Village’s newest jaa spot, The 
Gold Bug, on Apr. 28, with plans for 
a “Live” wax session. . . . Columbia’s 
Teri Thornton to put her name on 
some disks at the opening of Alex- 
ander’s newest store in Paramus, N.J. 
. . . The Smothers Brothers, one of 
the hottest folk acts in the business, 
is a hot item at the Flamingo in 
Vegas for four weeks. . . . Bobby 


Rydell headlined an all-star roster of 
teen favorites at Palisades this past 
weekend. Bobby’s going great guns 
with his Cameo etching of “Make Me 
Forget.” . . . Lesley Gore has planed 
to Hollywood to make her film debut 
for United Artists in “Beach Girl,” 
which she will sing the main theme. 
The young lark is still riding high 
with her Mercury disking of “That’s 
The Way Boys Are.” . . . Earl Wright- 
son & Lois Hunt are still on the con- 
cert trail. . . . Bernadette Castro has 
opened at the Boulevard nitery and 
will also reign as Queen of the Teen- 
age Center Pavilion at the World’s 
Fair. . . . Universal’s Linda Kay is 
making sales and airplay progress 
with her debut disk, “I Don’t Want 
To Be Alone” backed with “You’re 
Torture.” . . . Neil Sedaka has been 
set to host a one-hour TV special 
variety show which will spotlight 
young classical, opera, ballet, concert 
and rock and roll talents. 

DISK DOINGS: The Ronettes, cur- 


rently climbing the charts with their 
Philles outing of “(The Best Part Of) 
Breaking Up,” have been tapped for 
a p.a. at the Louisiana State Pavilion 
of the New York World’s Fair from 
13 to 17 May. . . . Joe Jones, who had 
a while-back click with, “You Talk 
Too Much,” called on the CB staff 
last week to plug a trio of decks he 
produced — “Chapel Of Love” by the 
Dixie Cups (Red Bird), “Something 
You Got” by Alvin Robinson (Tiger) 
and “Monkey Climb” by Moody & the 
Deltas (Daisy). Joe is skedded to ap- 


pear at Jazzland at the World’s Fair. 
. . . Frank LaRocca down at the Lon- 
don Branch told us the initial reac- 
tion to Caterina Valente’s newest LP, 
“I Happen To Like New York,” sur- 
passed all expectations and the lark 
is sure to have her biggest package 
to date. Frank’s click singles are “Not 
Fade Away” by the Rolling Stones, 
“Diane” by the Bachelors, and Roy 
Orbison’s Monument etching of “It’s 
Over.” . . . Mike Kelly has joined the 
personal management and publishing 
end of A1 Kasha Productions. Mike’s 
much excited over “Be My Girl” by 
the Four-Evers, “I’ll Step Aside” by 
Jimmy Clanton. 

Folksters Doug & Victoria set for 
the Jerry White Show at Palisades 
and a concert stand at Kossuth Hall 
Apr. 24. . . . George Luke, manager of 
Freddy Reno, writes that the chanter’s 
debut on the Don Costa label with 
Paul Anka’s latest composition has a 
sound powerful enough to cancel out

Well here’s our first release. There 
are people involved with each of the 
four records who’ve had the hit habit 
a long time. Take Roosevelt Grier do- 
ing “Fool, Fool, Fool” and “Since 
You’ve Been Gone.” Produced by 
Bobby Darin, who’s made a habit of 



Grier Darin 


making hits for himself, Wayne New- 
ton, Betty “Shoop, Shoop” Everett 
and others. A herd of backs around 
the National Pro Football League 
would testify that Rosey hits hard. 
Seriously, we think Rosey Grier is a 
great record artist in the Ray Charles 
tradition. Give a listen RIC #S102. 

Our country-pop entry the Terrys 
(Clay & Collis), is the best sound 
we’ve heard in a boy duo since Archie 
Bleyer, Wesley Rose and Boudleaux 
Bryant hit with the Everly Brothers. 
The guys who wrote the Terrys’ songs 
are our own Alex Zanetis whose lat- 
est was “As Usual” a Brenda Lee 
blockbuster and Harlan Howard who 
wears out a pair of shoes each year 
at the BMI Awards dinner, going up 
to the stage to pick up his scrolls. 
Alex wrote “Wake Me 100 Years 
From Now” and Harlan “Never 
Never Land.” Has hit written all over 
it. RIC #S101. 




The Terrys 

Phil Bodner has played on a hun- 
dred hit dates in his long career. He’s 
ready to erupt as one of the top hit 
instrumentalists of 1964. Try “Bei 
Mir Bist Du Schoen” and “Sunset” 
(RIC #103) and tell us if it isn’t one 
of the best clarinet records you’ve 
ever heard. 

Last, by a lad who had a big hit 
with the first record he ever made, 
(“Dear One” on the Old Town label a 
while back) is Larry Finnegan. His 
first RIC release is “Dear One, Part 
Two,” and “Baton Rouge.” both 
stamped hit. He’s RIC’s Director of 
A & R for the Young Market, and 
one of the best writing, singing, pro- 
ducing talents I’ve ever worked with. 

Like I said, everybody in the first 
RIC release has the hit habit. We’re 
going to try not to break it. And we’ll 
appreciate your

Billy J. Kramer 



Billy J. Kramer, who is presently 
clicking with “Little Children” on Im- 
perial, was born in Bootle, just out- 
side Liverpool, on August 19, 1943. 
The youngest member of a seven- 
children (three brothers, three sis- 
ters) family, Billy left school as a 
teenager to take up an engineering 
apprenticeship with British Railways 
in Liverpool. 

The artist started out as a spare- 
time rhythm guitar player with his 
self-formed local group but switched 
to vocal work some eighteen months 
ago. Billy was discovered in Liverpool 
by Brian Epstein, the manager of the 
Beatles, who signed him to an exclu- 
sive management direction contract at 
the beginning of 1963 at which time 
he left the British Railways to be- 
come fully professional. 

Billy was teamed up with the Da- 
kotas about a year ago, immediately 
prior to a one month session in Ger- 
many at Hamburg’s famous Star 
Club. And, with the backing of the 
group, he returned to Britain to make 
his first E.M.I. chart-topping deck, 
“Do You Want To Know A Secret.” 
Since then he has remained with the 
boys and has had a slew of hits across 
the foam. His current Top 100 item 
represents his initial U.S. success. 


Pixies Three 



The “pixie” haircuts of three Penn- 
sylvania girls gave them a profes- 
sional name before they were ten 
years old. The Pixies Three, now 
teenagers, look back happily on six 
years of singing together. School and 
community performances in Hanover, 
Pa., filled their lives until they be- 
came recording artists for Mercury 
Records with “Birthday Party.” The 
girls are currently striking paydirt 
with “Gee.” 

The trio studied voice and piano 
and learned to play the ukelele so that 
they could use ukes in their cats. They 
have been singing together in public 
for so long that they never have 
“stage fright.” 

When they were younger, obtaining 
a pianist for accompaniment was al- 
ways a problem, so one of the girls 
started standing with the trio and 
playing the piano at the same time. 
Later they bought a drummer’s stool 
so she could sit at the piano but still 
not appear much lower than the other 
two girls. 

Today, when the girls are not busy 
recording or attending school, they 
can probably be found playing p.a.’s, 
record hops and night club dates 
across the country. 


To re-enforce its year-long Sound 
One promotional theme, KDKA-Pitts- 
burgh is conducting a “Sounds of 
Baseball” contest. The contest also 
serves as a prelude to its coverage of 
all steel town games. In order to qual- 
ify for the drawing of 10 tickets to the 
first game, listeners are required to 
identify one of eight different “Sounds 
of Baseball.” For example: the sound 
of chickens followed by a baby crying 
equals foul ball (fowl bawl). The new 
contest is part of a series of season- 
long promotional events which KDKA 
will put behind its coverage of the 
Pirates games. 

KEX-Portland deejay Barney Keep, 
who leaves for Hawaii with a tour on 
April 26, has decided that his famous 
painting, Carmelita, needs a vacation, 
so he’s taking her along on the flight 
to Hawaii ... he feels even the is- 
lands can use another beauty. Car- 
melita, Barney’s one and only oil 
painting, has been rented to various 
Portland area businesses as an added 
attraction since her unveiling a year 
ago. All of the money earned from 
the rental has been donated to the 
Sunshine division of the Portland Po- 
lice Department and so far she has 
collected $396. 

KQV-Pittsburgh was recently hon- 
ored with a Citation of Merit by the 
Allegheny County Chapter of the 
Muscular Dystrophy Association of 
America for its support of the 1963- 
64 campaign. Presenting the certifi- 
cate at a luncheon in the Variety Club 
was Bill Hinds, campaign chairman of 
the drive. Tony Cortese, the outlet’s 
director of community affairs, ac- 
cepted the certificate in behalf of 
KQV. 

Completion of the sale of KFMB- 
AM-FM-TV-San Diego to Midwest 
Television, was announced last week 
in New York City by August C. 
Meyer, president, and his son, August 
C. Meyer, Jr., assistant secretary and 
treasurer. In making the announce- 
ment, Meyer said George Whitney has 
been elected veep and general man- 
ager of the Calif, division of Midwest 
Television. In addition to these duties, 
he is to act in the capacity of general 
consultant to other Midwest proper- 
ties. 

WJBK-Detroit’s “Tricky Tunes,” al- 
ready one of Detroit’s most popular 
fun games, tries its best to stump 
Radio 15 listeners. . . . but it just 
isn’t working. Correct entries are 
flowing in by the thousands. The ob- 
ject of the game is to identify the 
“Tricky Tune” played each day, Mon- 
day through Friday, five days per 
week. WJBK selects a current hit 
from the outlet’s record review, and 
plays it either fast, slow, backwards, 
or in some other way. The winner is 
drawn every Monday from the correct 
entries received and the prize is a 
RCA Victor tape recorder. . . . The 
“Good Guy’s Sweatshirt” give-away is 
in full swing at WJBK. Mail has been 
pouring in by the shirt-load, keeping 
buttons popping, selecting winners 
every hour of the day, in this, the 
newest game from the motor city sta- 
tion. 15 times each day, a WJBK spin- 
ner gives the shirt off his “Good 
Guy” back, to a winner selected from 
mail entries. Listeners enter their 
name, address and phone number on 
postcards which are mailed in for 
daily drawings with the sweatshirt 
size indicated — small, medium or 
large. Names from the selected cards 
are broadcast daily and the winners 


have 15 minutes to call the station to <,

Carr, Harvey L. Glascock, the outlet’s 
veep and general manager, stated: 
“Philadelphia is not only the most 
important gateway to the World’s

joyed in its own right. As always, 

WIP will do its best to promote our 
town.” 

The highest honor that can be given 
one who aids the Boys’ Clubs of

POP PICKS 



“NEW YORK WONDERLAND”— Andre Kos- 
telanetz — Columbia CL2138 

The upcoming New York World’s Fair has 
sparked a renewed interest in the extensive 
catalog of songs written about the big city. 
Andre Kostelanetz joins a growing list of major 
artists who have recently paid musical tribute 
to the metropolis with this Columbia package of 
Gotham tunes. A frequent chart-rider, Kos- 
telanetz could very well add this set to his string 
of best-sellers. Best bets here are “New York, 
New York,” “Manhattan Serenade” and “The 
Bowery.” 


fxaex ix*' r FW'

“DIMENSION 3” — Enoch Light — Command 
RS867SD 

Command Records, which set new standards of 
stereophonic brilliance with its “Persuasive Per- 
cussion” and “35/MM” sets, offers its latest 
stereo advancement with this issue of, “Dimen- 
sion 3,” purported to create the illusion of a 
3rd or middle speaker. Great depth and separa- 
tion clarity are much in evidence. Enoch Light’s 
Light Brigade bows the new process with, 
“Carribe,” “Hey There,” “Adios,” “Hawaiian 
Wedding Song” and 8 others. Stereophiles should 
come out in force for the set. 






I | 


“MONDO CANE #2” — Kai Winding — Verve 
V 8573 

Kai Winding, had a giant best-selling LP with 
his first “More” session, and this second edition 
of rock-oriented jazz-flavored sounds should well 
go a like success route. The big Winding crew 
direct their musical attention to basic melodic 
lines as they dish-up first-rate rendition of “Till,” 
“Warm” and “Portrait Of My Love.” Eye the 
package for rapid consumer acceptance. 


“50 FABULOUS ITALIAN FAVORITES”— A1 
Caiola — United Artists UAS 6354 
For his second entry in UA’s “50 Fabulous 
. . .” series vet guitarist-orkster A1 Caiola comes 
up with a warm-heai’ted offering boasting half 
a hundred Italian studies. Caiola and crew are 
in top-notch form on such popular items as 
“More,” “Volare” and “0 Sole Mio.” Disk has 
enough built-in success ingredients to score 
heavily in the coin department. 


}■ 

“SHOWTIME” — James Brown — Smash MGS 
27054 

James Brown kicks off his Smash LP career with 
this hard-driving set of teen-oriented pop-r&b 
items which includes both beat-ballads and up- 
tempo selections. The songster’s rich, wide range 
voice carries him in fine stead on top-notch 
chorus-backed readings of “Caldonia,” “Don’t Cry 
Baby” and “Out Of The Blue.” Loads of sales 
potential here. 



JOHNNY

“I’LL SEARCH MY HEART”— Johnny Mathis— 
Columbia CL 2143 

Here’s another dozen Mathis-styled ballads from 
the Columbia vaults cut during his affiliation 
with the label. The Mathis magic appears to be 
timeless and this set should attract his legions 
of fans in short order to send it to the best- 
seller lists. The songster warmly reads his way 
through “I’ll Search My Heart,” “Wherever You 
Are It’s Spring,” “The Best Of Everything,” 
“Starbright” and eight more romance-angled 
melodies. 


■’ THE COMPLETE LIFE OF

L THROUGH HiS OWN WORDS 



“THE COMPLETE LIFE OF GEN. DOUGLAS 
A. MACARTHUR THROUGH HIS OWN 
WORDS” — Atlantic 9095 

The recent deluge of Kennedy memorial albums 
now give way to a variety of wax tributes to 
Gen. Douglas MacArthur. Atlantic begins its 
spoken word series with this collection of 
speeches by the General beginning with his 
WWII talks and closing with his farewell ad- 
dress at West Point in ’62. As with the Kennedy 
LP’s, the set is timely and of historical signifi- 
cance. Market activity should be brisk.

“MEET THE TEMPTATIONS”— Gordy 911 
The Temptations bow on Gordy with this album 
romp of r&b items including their current top 
ten smash, “The Way You Do The Things You 
Do.” The crew has garnered a large following 
via the single click and could strike paydirt with 
this LP debut. Their fans will dig their smooth 
readings of “I Want A Love I Can See,” “Just 
Let Me Know” and “Dream Come True.” 


CEOBfl K SHEARING OLD GOLD AMD I VORY 



“OLD GOLD AND IVORY” — George Shearing — 
Capitol T 2048 

Although George Shearing has earned his repu- 
tation on the basis of his sparkling jazz stylings, 
he is perfectly capable of performing in other 
idioms as evidenced by this delightful Capitol set 
of pop-classical selections. While backed by a 
subtle Milton Raskin-conducted ork, the 88’er is 
spotlighted in superior lyrical versions of such 
favorites as “Fantasia Impromptu,” “Pavane” 
and Chopin’s “Prelude No. 20.” A potent package. 



“PRESENTING THE TAMS”— ABC Paramount 

481 

The Tams, who’ve clicked with “What Kind Of 
Fool” and “It’s All Right,” include both of the 
blockbusters on this premiere album session from 
ABC-Paramount. The group have hit on both the 
pop and r&b charts with their offerings and make 
a strong bid for album acceptance with this ini- 
tial set. Eye it for rapid acceptance in several 
markets. Also included here are “Do I Worry” 
and “Close To Me.” 



“WHO DO YOU LOVE”— Sapphires— Swan LP 

513 

The Sapphires tag this new Swan set after their 
recent chart-rider of “Who Do You Love” and in- 
clude eleven other swingin’ teen-angled pop-r&b 
items. The trio’s imaginative brand of vocal har- 
mony and counterpoint gives an extra plus to 
such fine rockin’ selections as “Come On And 
Love Me,” “I’ve Got Mine You Better Get Yours” 
and “Where Is Johnny Now.” 


POP BEST BETS 



“ME AND THE BLUES”— Joe Williams— RCA 
Victor LPM 2879 

The blues are actually far more than a form of 
musical expression, they’re a way of life. Joe 
Williams has always been deeply caught up in 
a blues-directed emotional perspective. On this 
new full ork-backed set the chanter superbly 
demonstrates his feeling for the blues on top- 
drawer, funky renditions of “I’m Sticking With 
You, Baby,” “Every Night” and “Come On 
Blues.” One of the best albums that the artist 
has cut in quite a while. 



“LILIES OF THE FIELD”— Orig. Soundtrack- 
Epic LN 24094 

The much-acclaimed Sidney Poitier starrer, “Lil- 
ies Of The Field,” is enhanced by the Jerry Gold- 
smith-composed and conducted score which pro- 
vides dramatic impact throughout. Haunting folk 
strains and a tinge of blues are recurrent. Jester 
Harston delivers the vocals. Academy Award 
attention should spark interest in the disk.

The themes from thirteen Columbia pictures have 
been culled from their soundtracks and included

orchestras, composers and conductors are repre- 
sented on these themes from recent and not so 
recent films. The set opens with the theme from 
“Dr. Strangeiove,” and continues with such mem- 
orable items as the themes from “Lawrence Of 
Arabia,” “From Here To Eternity,” and “Picnic.” 
The LP has plenty of sales interest.

Cash Box ALBUM REVIEWS 



“BECKET” — Original Soundtrack — Decca DL 
79117 

Laurence Rosenthal has devised a superb and 
powerful score for the new Paramount film, 
“Becket,” which is a box-office smash wherever 
it is playing. Wide interest in the film could spark 
interest in this soundtrack recording on Decca. 
Conducted by Muir Mathieson, the score vividly 
points up the grandeur and basic sacred theme.

“MY TRUE LOVE”— Wink Martindale— Dot DLP 
25571 

Fads may come and go, but Wink Martindale 
continues in his infectious, easy-going singing 
style. On this new Dot LP, in which he is teamed 
up with lark Robin Ward on some selections, 
Martindale’s distinctive, pleasant baritone voice 
is effectively spotlighted on a host of favorites 
including “My True Love,” “Our Love Affair” 
and “With My Eyes Wide Open I’m Dreaming.” 
All of the artist’s many fans should come out in 
droves for the set. 



“MY KIND OF FOLK SONGS”— Gale Garnett— 
RCA Victor LSP 2833 

Thespian Gale Garnett showcases her folksinging 
talents on this new Victor release of evergreens 
and originals and displays a distinctive, highly- 
personal magnetic brand of wailing. The lark has 
rich, husky throaty voice and a super-charged, 
expressive delivery. Highlights of the set include 
“I Know You Rider,” “Take This Hammer” and 
“We’ll Sing In The Sunshine.” A performer to 
watch. 



“OF LOVE, OF WAR, OF MANY THINGS— 
Seraffyn — Columbia CL 2157 

In an era when authenticity in folk music has 
become a rare element, Seraffyn remains a de- 
lightful crystal-pure breath of fresh air. The 
chanter, who is assisted by soprano Carolyn 
Wilmshurst on this set, offers a varied program 
of traditional American and European items. Best 
listening bets here include “Will Ye No Come 
Back Again,” “Try To Remember” and “The Cow- 
boy’s Lament.” Superior entertainment through- 
out. 



WTO 

"GUITAR 

BOOGIE",-,. 


“DOWN HOME WITH ARTHUR ‘GUITAR 
BOOGIE’ SMITH— Starday SLP 266 
Arthur “Guitar Boogie” Smith displays the hu- 
morous side of his musical coin on this infectious 
Starday set of novelty country selections. While 
backing himself on the guitar, the artist turns 
in excellent folksy readings of “Tie My Hunting 
Dog Down, Jed,” “The Stuttering Song” and 
“The Master Of The Game.” Country deejays 
should find plenty of programmable material here. 


JAZZ PICKS 



“WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?”— 
Jimmy Smith — Verve V 8583 
The vet midstream organist pulls out all the mu- 
sical stops on this first-rate Verve set of chest- 
nuts and originals. With a delightful packet of 
Oliver Nelson and Claus Ogerman arrangements 
and a full ork backing, Smith constructs some 
cookin’ freewheelin’ chromatic progressions on 
“Slaughter On Tenth Avenue,” “Who’s Afraid Of 
Virginia Woolf?” and “John Brown’s Body.” An 
eye-catching clever cover should help spark po- 
tent sales. 


“BIG BAND AND QUARTET”— Thelonious Monk 
— Columbia CL 2164 

Thelonious Monk is presented in a program of 
his own jazz compositions on this sparkling Co- 
lumbia set which was cut during a recent Phil- 
harmonic Hall concert. The pianist is showcased 
here in a big band context and he proves that 
his avant-garde developments can fit into any mu- 
sical situation. Monk shines here on “I Mean 
You,” “Evidence” and “Four In One.” Jazzophiles 
should really dig the set.

COWMAN HAWKINS 


“THE INFLUENCE OF FIVE”— Various Artists 
— Mainstream 6002 

The jazz idiom is surveyed with authority on this 
Mainstream re-issue of a Commodore Jazz Classic 
spotlighting the talents of Lester Young, Cole- 
man Hawkins, Don Byas, Ben Webster and Chu 
Berry. These performances are straight out of 
the archives and of historical importance. The 
devoted jazzophile will surely want to add these 
to his collection. Included on this set are, “My 
Ideal,” “I Got Rhythm’ and “These Foolish 
Things.” 



“JAYNE MANSFIELD: SHAKESPEARE, 
TCHAIKOVSKY & ME”— MGM E 4202 
Jayne Mansfield, whose talents have been pri- 
marily visual, aims her characteristic breathless 
delivery at a host of classical poems on this MGM 
wax debut. A subdued background piano plays 
melidoc Tchaikovsky accompaniment to the ac- 
tress’s poetic efforts as she gathers up a surpris- 
ing amount of emotion and feeling for her read- 
ings of, “How Do I Love Thee,” “She Walks In 
Beauty,” “Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes” 
and many others.

“GREAT MOVIE THEMES”— Johnny Puleo— 
Audio Fidelity AFSD 5969 

Johnny Puleo and his Harmonical Gang direct 
their instrumental versatility at a dozen old and 
new flick themes on this new album offering from 
Audio Fidelity. The leader and his crew inject 
plenty of high spirits into the proceedings here 
as they happily romp through such goodies as 
“Col. Bogey March,” “Tonight,” “Moon River,” 
“Waltzing Matilda” and others equally delightful. 



“BLACK FIRE”— Andrew Hill— Blue Note 4151 
Andrew Hill, a new young innovating jazz 88’er, 
is showcased here in his first date as a leader on 
this melodic teaming-up with Joe Henderson on 
tenor sax, Richard Davis on bass and Roy Haynes. 
Althrough all the members of the crew each get 
a chance to shine in the solo spotlight, the main 
artistic burden rests with Hill who displays a 
hard-driving, avant-garde, keyboard style on 
“Black Fire,” “Tired Trade” and “Land Of Nod.”

“HIGHLIGHTS FROM LAKME”— Various Art- 
ists — Angel 36107 

Soprano Gianna D’Angelo and tenor Nicolai 
Gedda perform the major roles in Delibes 
“Lakme” on this highlight package from Angel. 
The Chorus & Orchestra of the Theatre National 
de l’Opera Comique, is conducted by Georges 
Pretre with Jack Collin as Chorus Master. Opera 
buffs will surely enjoy this compact version, espe- 
cially Gianna D’Angelo’s “Bell Song” and Gedda’s 
“Ah! viens, dans la foret profonde.” A delightful 
operatic entry from Angel. 



“MUSICAL MEMORIES OF NAPLES”— London 
International TW 91313 

Here’s another entry from London International’s 
“Musical Memory” series, this time highlighting 
the folk melodies of Naples. As in the other al- 
bums, the tunes were recorded by local artists 
whose contributions were completely authentic. A 
variety of vocalists serve up these Neopolitan 
oldies, usually to the accompaniment of a mando- 
lin. A very enjoyable offering. 





“RHAPSODY”— Cleveland Pops Orchestra/Louis 
Lane — Epic LC 3879 

A quintet of the world’s favorite rhapsodies by 
major composers are performed by the Cleveland 
Pops Orchestra with Louis Lane conducting. 
These are familiar works with strong melodies 
and fiery tempos. Top-notch listening enjoyment 
to be had here as the orchestra surveys Alfven’s 
“Swedish Rhapsody,” Liszt’s “Hungarian Rhap- 
sody No. 2,” Herbert’s “Irish Rhapsody,” Enesco’s 
“Rumanian Rhapsody No. 1” and Chabrier’s “Es- 
pana.”

Franc Label Starts 
Nat'l Release Sked 

NEW YORK — Franc Records, pre- 
viously released only in the Washing- 
ton, D.C. area, has gone national. In 
conjunction with the move, H. Frank- 
lin Grist, president of the label, has 
named Superior Distributing, of New 
York, to handle the diskery in the 
Gotham area. 

First issues under the geographical 
expansion are two singles, featuring 
Donald Leace and Carol Hedin, and 
an LP with the aforementioned per- 
formers. 


Bennett Denies Timi 
Has Ended Liberty Ties 

LOS ANGELES — A1 Bennett, presi- 
dent of Liberty Records, last week 
denied printed reports that claimed 
the songstress Timi Yuro had “ended 
her contract with Liberty Records.” 

He issued the following statement: 
“We are informed by our corporation 
counsel that an exclusive recording 
agreement between Timi Yuro and 
Liberty Records is valid and sustain- 
ing and in full force and effect. We 
intend to take whatever steps neces- 
sary to protect our rights under the 
existing contract.” 


Here Is The Nice Guy That Is 




NEW YORK — Those doubting-Thomases who hold fast in their belief that the 
“impossible” exists only in fairy tales were witness to the tabs being turned 
last week in a stranger-than-fiction reality when representatives of the trade 
press along with other music colony cohorts feted MGM’s unsinkable drum- 
beater Sol Handwerger with a surprise party-luncheon at A1 and Dick’s here. 
Sol (left), who has been with the firm for two dozen years, which must stand 
as some sort of a record in the fickle, ambiguous music biz, is shown above re- 
ceiving a special gold record from the RIAA’s Henry Brief in recognition of 
his years of industry. Handwerger’s corsaged wife, Ruth, is shown in the fore- 
ground. Editors in attendance swore it would have to blizzard in July before 
ever picking up the check for any label exec again.

“Dance-A-Story” Is Victor’s 


New Kiddie Ed Series 



NEW YORK— RCA Victor Records 
has issued a new children’s and edu- 
cational record series titled “Dance-a- 
Story,” with an initial release of four 
packages. The albums aimed variously 
at the age group from 3 to 12 and has 
been developed with elementary and 
nursery schools, dance studios, recre- 
ation groups, libraries and home use 
as the potential market. 

“Dance-a-Story,” a collaboration 
between Victory and Ginn and Com- 
pany, publishers, is the brainchild of 
west coast dance educator Anne Lief 
Barlin. 

In essence, the Dance-a-Story pack- 
ages each contain the 7-inch LP con- 
taining original music and story-nar- 
ration plus a booklet, illustrated in 
full-color, which presents the full 
text. The illustrations depict (1) the 
“story line” and (2) responding to 
various rhythmic movements as sug- 
gested by both music and text. 

First four titles are “Noah’s Ark,” 
“Little Duck,” “The Magic Mountain” 
and “Balloons.” 

The texts have been written by 
Paul and Anne Barlin, the illustra- 
tions for the books are by Lois Zener 


Thomas and the music has been com- 
posed by the well-known composer 
Paul Schoop. 

Ray Sacher, manager of edu- 
cational sales at Victor, said the over- 
all idea is to “so involve the child in 
a fanciful idea that he reacts in- 
stinctively, physically and creatively. 
The combination of story, music, and 
picture sparks this kind of participa- 
tion. The child can (1) read the story 
(2) look at the pictures (3) listen to 
music and narration (4) learn begin- 
ning dance technique (5) be stimu- 
lated toward creative expression, 
pantomime and dramatic interpreta- 
tion and (6) have fun.” 

The “Dance-a-Story” concept is 
compatible with elementary dance 
technique instruction, although both 
Victor and Ginn Company (publisher 
of the booklets) recognize a public 
far broader than the classroom or 
studio. 

The albums are packaged in boxes 
with “see-through” lids which beg 
investigation by parents and children. 
The marketing concept embraces 
regular record outlets, racks and toy 
centers. 


Atlantic Sets Push On 
Its MacArthur Album 

NEW YORK — Atlantic Records has 
put a nation-wide merchandising and 
sales campaign into force to back up 
its recently released album, “The 
Complete Life Of General Douglas A. 
MacArthur Through His Own Words.” 
Advance orders on the LP already to- 
tal in excess of 75,000 albums, accord- 
ing to Len Sachs, director of album 
sales and merchandising. Distribs are 
working with a special discount on the 
album, with deferred billing available 
to qualifying accounts. Although all 
sales are being handled through dis- 
tribs, Atlantic has contacted rack job- 
bers and chain stores with informa- 
tion about the MacArthur LP. 

A concentrated effort is being made 
by Atlantic to reach special organiza- 
tions who have an interest in the Mac- 
Arthur package. 

A program of distrib-dealer co-op 
advertising has been set up, using 
both radio and newspaper media, with 
a heavy schedule of radio spots. A 
large number of displays of the album 
have been arranged in retail outlets 
throughout the country. All avenues 
of radio exposure are being explored. 

The Atlantic MacArthur album was 
produced by Joseph Tery and Stan 
Burns. It includes all of MacArthur’s 
important speeches. Thirteen of them 
are linked by a narration created by 
writer Murray Burnett, and appropri- 
ate musical programming under the 
supervision of Ethel Huber. Narra- 
tion on the LP is done by Stan Burns. 
The artist Sid Maurer was commis- 
sioned to create a special piece of art 
for the cover, a drawing of MacAr- 
thur smoking his famous corncob pipe.

NEW YORK — The formation of a 
Music & Performing Arts Lodge of 
B’Nai B’rith, the Jewish service or- 
ganization, is underway. 

Still in its formative stages, with 
some 52 members of the music busi- 
ness among its charter membership, 
the lodge-to-be held its second meet 
last week (13) at the Squire Inn, this 
city. At the meet, three committees 
were named to help formally estab- 
lish the lodge. Cy Leslie is chairman 
pro tern; Morrie Price is treasurer 
pro tern and Leon Kellman is secre- 
tary pro tern. 

Meetings are planned for the first 
Monday of each month. The next 


gathering will be on May 4 at a site 
to be announced soon. 

The three committees and their 
members (shown in the above photos) 
are: (top, left to right): institution 
committee: Stan Sterling, Howard 
Stark, Warren Rossman, Ira Moss, 
Ralph Berson, Jerry Shifrin and 
Marty Romer; (middle) nominating 
committee: Juggy Gayles, Len Lewis, 
Manny Wells, Morrie Price, Cy Leslie, 
A1 Brackman and Joe Abend; (bot- 
tom) charter membership committee: 
Irv Stimler, Sol Greenberg, Len 
Lewis, Juggy Gayles, Billy Mann 
(chairman), Stan Lewis, Marty Ro- 
mer and Irv Lichtman.

The CBS International Story: One “Big” Year Later 


(Cont’d from page 6) 
handled by a licensee. This often 
means separate staffs and different 
distribution outlets. 

Citing gains brought about by such 
arrangements, Schein disclosed that 
CBS product has in the past year 
caught on immediately in foreign 
markets and that CBS outlets had 
gone over guarantees in most areas. 

As for wholly-owned set-ups, Schein 
disclosed rosy financial gains in 
France, one of the two European 
countries where CBS has full control 
of its outlet (the other is Germany). 
For a five-month period between Nov. 
1963 and Mar. 1964, CBS in France 
realized a 100% increase in sales over 
a similar period in 1962-63. 

In Germany, the CBS label is al- 
ready well-established as a chart win- 
ner. Currently, CBS boasts a more 
than 400,000 disk seller with a single 
by Bernd Spier, who sings “Das 
Kannst Du Mir Nicht Verbieten” 
(You Can Never Stop Me Loving 
You), and a solid 200,000 sales item 
for newcomer Marika Kilius’ “Wenn 
Die Cowboys Traumen.” 

In Italy, CBS, through its associa- 
tion with Dischi Ricordi, has made 
history with Italy’s first million-sell- 


Lavalle Band Of America — 
N.Y. World's Fair Version 

NEW YORK— Paul Lavalle of Band 
of America fame, has been signed for 
the run of the New York World’s Fair 
to conduct the Fair’s version of the 
Band of America, composed of 50 mu- 
sicians representing our 50 states. 
Cities Service, the company which 
sponsored Lavalle’s broadcasts, will 
co-sponsor the band. 

The Paul Lavalle World’s Fair Band 
of America will he presented six 
times daily in band shells located 
throughout the Fair. The concerts will 
be free and culminate daily with an 
appearance before the fountain dis- 
play. The musicians will be trans- 
norted in a unique Band Wagon, the 
largest in the world — 72 feet long, 
and will carry the 50 musicians seated 
in specially designed swivel chairs 
with music stands attached. The two 
sectioned Band Wagon, which forms 
a V-shape when parked for playing, 
also has a self-contained amplification 
system. The musicians will wear cos- 
tumes in World’s Fair colors — blue 
and orange. 

Maestro Lavalle has also been 
awarded another musical plum of the 
Fair. He will conduct the 100 piece 
Symphony Orchestra which on open- 
ing day will perform the World’s Fair 
Suite in 5 movements. This was com- 
posed by Ferde Grofe as commis- 
sioned by Robert Moses, President of 
the New York World’s Fair Corpora- 
tion. 

Lavalle’s recordings for RCA Vic- 
tor and, currently, MGM have been 
solid sellers for 20 years. 


Keels To New Post 
At CRDC, Miller Succeeds 

HOLLYWOOD — Bob Keels, formerly 
a regional manager for Capitol Rec- 
ords Distributing Corp., has been pro- 
moted to services manager of the na- 
tional sales dept, of CRDC, a newly- 
created post. Keels will report to na- 
tional sales manager Bill Tallant, who 
said Keels would be responsible for of- 
fice management of the national sales 
dept, as well as preparation and an- 
alysis of sales data and special as- 
signments. Keels will headquarter in 
the Capitol Tower. 

Succeeding Keels in the field is 
Dick Miller, whose region will include 
the Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, 
Des Moines, St. Louis and Kansas 
City branches and Boyd Distributing 
Co., Denver. Miller had been assist- 
ant sales manager in Los Angeles. 


ing disk, Bobby Solo’s “Una Lacrima 
Sul Viso (A Tear On Your Face).” 

In order to make its hit American 
artists feels more at home abroad in 
the disk sense, CBS is ready to release 
original American language hits in 
one of the four foreign tongues — 
Spanish, French, Italian and German. 

It is therefore part of Columbia 
Records’ hit U.S. artists’ normal re- 
cording schedule to cut, in a U.S. stu- 
dio, a foreign language version of 
their U.S. successes, with arrange- 
ments that are carbon-copies of the 
English rendition. 

Thus such hot Columbia names as 
Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme, 
Andy Williams, Dion, the New 
Christy Minstrels and others reach 
foreign markets with their popular 
U.S. dates in new versions adapted to 
particular lingual areas. 

While these foreign language dates 
are at this time mostly confined to 
singles, there is at least one instance 
whereby a Columbia performer — 
Eydie Gorme — has cut an LP for the 
Spanish market. It was an album with 
the Trio Los Ponchos, a strong Span- 
ish-market attraction. 

In some cases, a foreign language 
reading may be coupled with the 
original English success, an approach 
used for Steve Lawrence’s Italian ver- 
sion of “Go Away Little Girl.” 

Whether the CBS label achieves hits 
of local or import origin, the local out- 
let finds its sales job that much easier. 
As Schein explains it, a local CBS 
salesman finds his reception by a local 
dealer to be more positive when the 
dealer is aware that the label he rep- 
resents is doing well on the local 
scene. And as a result of local success, 
the entire CBS catalog, including its 
product from Columbia in America, 
begins to move. 

Even a cursory inspection of CBS 
Records Identification Guide makes it 
plain that the company means busi- 
ness in its attempt to carry over a 
single image over the globe. 

Specific dimensions, colors and 
printing type sizes for LP and single 
cover sleeves are drawn up to scale, 
as are such administrative forms as 
press releases letterheads, artist bios, 
order forms, inter-office communica- 
tions, etc. As for the CBS logo, the kit 
also is explicit on the various sizes at 
which it can be displayed. 

As previously noted, the CBS mark 
is near completition of its ‘round-the- 
world’ single look, but areas are yet 
to be covered. Recently, CBS was es- 
tablished in Israel, and that move has 
already resulted in a Hebrew-lan- 
guage rendition of “My Fair Lady,” 
Columbia Records’ classic Broadway 


show entry, which already has Eng- 
lish, Spanish, Italian and German cast 
versions. On its way is CBS of India. 
About a month ago, Frank Stanton, 
president of the Columbia Broadcast- 
ing Co., parent firm of the Columbia 
and CBS labels, disclosed — in a first 
quarter financial report — that “impor- 
tant companies” in foreign disk mar- 
kets would be purchased. 

Even Iron Curtain countries are 
getting CBS scrutiny. In Poland, CBS 
has arranged a deal with the Polish 
Cultural Agency, run by the Polish 
Government, whereby the agency is al- 
lowed to press those CBS disks it feels 
will be of interest to the Polish mar- 
ket. One such example is a Doris Day 
EP in English. 

Obviously, the single image look at 
CBS has gone a long way as it moves

great strides in adapting itself to the 
concept of a one-world disk market. 



The upper logo now appears on every CBS

in each of the nations when CBS was in- 
troduced.

Col. Releases Williams 7 
7/ Call Me Irresponsible 77 

NEW YORK— Andy Williams, who 
sang the winning song, “Call Me 
Irresponsible,” at last week’s Oscar 
telecast, performs in a new album of 
the same name just released by Co- 
lumbia Records. 

Williams also presented the last 
two Oscar winners, “Moon River” 
and “Days of Wine & Roses,” and re- 
sulting albums with their titles went 
on to prove gold-record sellers. 

Besides the winning song, the LP 
also includes two of this year’s 
nominees, “Charade,” which he also 
sang on the show, and “More.” 


Arwin Re-Releases 
Years-Back Success 

HOLLYWOOD — Arwin Productions, 
which recently re-activated its Arwin 
Records and Artists and Daywin mu- 
sic publishing firms under Don Gen- 
son, have set a re-release of “Chi-hua- 
hua” by The Pets. 

Disk, which clicked for the label a 
few years back, has come to life again 
in several areas, according to Genson, 
and distrib requests across the coun- 
try prompted the release. 

Genson stated the publishing firms 
will be tieing in with more of Arwins 
up-coming movie productions as well 
as with outside motion picture firms. 
At present, the record firm is looking 
for masters to purchase, and the pub- 
lishing firms are seeking writers to 
sign up under exclusive contracts. Ne- 
gotiations are also under way for the 
purchase of additional labels under 
the Arwin banner. 


Capitol Names Osaki 
To Top Art Dept. 

HOLLYWOOD— George Osaki has 
been named art director for Capitol 
Records, according to Marvin 
Schwartz, creative services adminis- 
trator. Osaki succeeds Ed Thrasher, 
who resigned to accept a similar post 
with Warner Bros. Records. 

Osaki, who was named assistant art 
director last January, has been with 
the art department since 1960. Before 
that he was an illustrator with North 
American Aviation. Osaki studied at 
both the Chicago Art Institute and 
Chouinard Art Institute in Los An- 
geles. 

As art director, Osaki’s primary re- 
sponsibility will be overall supervision 
of Capitol album covers.

Set DeRose Memorial Week 

NEW YORK — The 11th commemora- 
tive anniversary of composer Peter 
DeRose’s death — encompassing Peter 
DeRose Memorial Week — takes place 
this year from April 23-30. 

As in past tributes to the composer 
of “Deep Purple” and other ever- 
greens, there will be a number of 
events that will salute him, including 
a temporary re-titling of Duffy 
Square on Broadway to Peter DeRose 
Memorial Square. Vincent Lopez and 
other performers are also due for mu- 
sical salutes to the composer on radio, 
TV and niteries. 

The widow of Peter DeRose, May 
DeRose, will appear on various broad- 
casts, including Joe Franklin’s “Mem- 
ory Lane” on WOR-TV in New York, 
to reminisce about her late husband. 


Victor Military Band 
Disks Lead To Award 
To Kennedy Center 

WASHINGTON, D.C.— The John F. 
Kennedy Center for the Performing- 
Arts last week (13) received an award 
from the Freedoms Foundation at 
Valley Forge for collecting and pre- 
senting on RCA Victor recordings 
the outstanding music of the four 
great U.S. Armed Forces Service 
bands and their singing counterparts. 

The award, which was accepted by 
Mrs. Jouett Shouse. a member of the 
Center’s Board of Trustees, was pre- 
sented by Dr. Kenneth D. Wells, pres- 
ident of the Foundation, at a break- 
fast meeting held in the Senate Con- 
ference Room. 

The four service band albums — mili- 
tary music and patriotic songs played 
bv the bands of the Army, Marine 
Corns. Navy and Air Force — were re- 
corded by Victor, and all profits from 
their sale are being donated to the 
Center. Released in May 1963, more 
than 200,000 copies of the albums 
have been sold. The first royalty pay- 
ment of nearly $60,000 representing 
the first four months’ sale of the al- 
bums, was presented to the Center by 
Victor’s vice president and general 
manager, George R. Marek, last Jan. 


"Whistle" Continues Run 
On Columbia Cast LP 



NEW YORK — Yes, musical comedy 
buffs, there will be an original-cast 
version of “Anyone Can Whistle.” 

Columbia Records has decided to go 
ahead with the release of the cast 
version of the Arthur Laurents- 
Stephen Sondheim musical despite the 
fact that it didn’t last a week on 
Broadway. Most critics felt its anti- 
war message was too far-out to be 
entertaining. 

In fact, when Columbia cut the 
show last Sunday (12), the final per- 
formance of the show took place the 
night before. 

A spokesman for the label indicated 
that the diskery feels the show’s 
score is well-worth an LP reading, 
and could make it on disks ala 
“Candide,” the 1956 Leonard Bern- 
stein show that failed on stage, but is 
now standard item in Columbia’s 
show-music catalog. Laurents, Sond- 
heim and Bernstein were the creators 
of “West Side Story.” 

Back in 1947, Columbia also re- 
leased the original-cast version of 
Kurt Weill’s “Street Scene” after its 
Broadway run. 

Another recent instance whereby a 
label proceeded to cut an original- 
cast LP of a musical after closing- 
night is Capitol’s recording of 
“Kwamina,” the Richard Adler show. 

Capitol, by the way, has just re- 
leased the Off-B’way revival presenta- 
tion of “Cabin in the Sky,” which was 
recorded during the short run of the 
show. 

Repeating their short-lived stage 
roles on the album are Lee Remick, 
shown in the top photo with Goddard 
Lieberson, Columbia president who 
produced the session; and (bottom) 
Angela Lansbury and Harry Guar- 
dino. 


Felix Faecq In U.S. 

NEW YORK— Felix Robert Faecq of 
World Music Company of Belgium is 
currently on a visit to the U.S. 

Following a stay in Canada last 
week, the music exec will be in 
Gotham for the remainder of this 
month. He’s making his offices at Zo- 
diac Music Corp., this city. 



WASHINGTON, D. C. — Congressman James Roosevelt (right), of California,

Wexler, Monument Records sales manager John Sippel, and Minneapolis dis- 
trib Amos Heilicher. 


Mary Lou Smith, King 
Exec, Dies Suddenly 

CINCINNATI— Mary Lou Smith, 
long time executive secretary to Syd- 
ney Nathan, president of King Rec- 
ords, died suddenly here on Saturday, 
April 4, following a heart attack. 

She joined King in 1946 and was 
with the firm from almost the start. 
She was recognized as one of the ex- 
perts in the field of foreign publish- 
ing and record licensing and in this 
capacity was responsible for the pub- 
lishing of the vast part of the Lois 
catalog around the world and the re- 
lease of King and Bethlehem masters 
in some 20-odd foreign countries. 

She also headed up the contracts 
division in addition to her other du- 
ties. 

A High Requiem Mass was held 
Tuesday, April 7, in the St. Anthony 
of Padua Church and internment was 
in Spring Grove Memorial Cemetery. 


Contempo Inks 
Richard Hayes 

NEW YORK — Singer Richard Hayes 
has inked a long-term pact with Con-

diskery that is released through Uni- 
ted Artists. His first date is due in 
several weeks.

Paul Peterson Renews 
Pact With Col. -Pics 

HOLLYWOOD — Paul Peterson has 
signed a new seven-year contract 
with Columbia Pictures Corp. and 
its subsids, Screen Gems and Colpix, 
involving television, films and disks. 

The new pact guarantees the young 
singer-actor one feature flick a year 
and his own TV series at the termina- 
tion of the Donna Reed Show on 
which he is a regular. In his first wax 
session since the signing of the pact, 
Peterson cut two sides by Barry 
Mann and Cynthia Weil who gave 
him his whileback hit, “My Dad.” 


"A Hard Day's Night" Is 
Beatles' New U.A. Flick 

NEW YORK — “A Hard Day’s Night” 
has been chosen as a title for the 
Beatles’ new flick for United Artists. 
The famed British rock group selected 
the tag themselves. 

The film is currently before the 
cameras in England and it will 
feature eight new tunes composed by 
Beatles John Lennon and Paul Mc- 
Cartney. 


Blue Angel Moves 
For Bankruptcy Petition 

NEW YORK — It’s hard to wish the 
Blue Angel, the famed New York 
nitery, a happy 21st birthday this 
week. 

The club last week filed a petition 
of bankruptcy, and Max Gordon, 
whose Her-Max, Inc. operates the star 
showcase, appeared in Federal Court 
on the petition last Thurs. (16). 

The club, however, intends to stay 
open, and will try to bring back many 
name performers for return engage- 
ments. The Blue Angel over the years 
has spotlighted such talents as Harry 
Belafonte, Shelley Berman, Mike 
Nichols and Elaine May and Carol 
Burnett. 

The petition lists liabilities of 
$126,230 and assets of $36,446. 

Factors said to be involved in the 
club’s financial straits are: a decline 
in late-hour nitery attendance, new 
tax expense account rules and 
potential visitors to New York who 
are staying away until the World’s 
Fair opens. 


CMS Label Returns 
With MacArthur LP 

NEW YORK— CMS Records, follow- 
ing a 16 year absence on the disk 
scene, has been reactivated with the 
release of a tribute LP to the late 
General of the Army, Douglas Mac- 
Arthur. 

Label is currently selling the LP 
on a mail-order basis. Last week it 
ran a coupon ad in the Wall Street 
Journal, which also displayed the 
cover sleeve of the LP, called “Old 
Soldiers Never Die,” which contains 
MacArthur’s famed speech before 
Congress on April 19, 1951. Price is 
$3.98. 

One of the principals in CMS is 
Irving Tepper, owner of the Chester- 
field Music Shop, a mail-order and 
export firm. Leon Golovner, manager 
of Chesterfield, is also involved in the 
set-up. 

Golovner said that CMS, located at 
14 Warren Street, this city, has 
several other releases in the can for 
issue sometime in the future. 

CMS was last heard from via al- 
bums by Oscar Brand and opera 
singer Fernando DeLuca marketed 
about 16 years ago. 


Mobile Fidelity Signs 
Rhythm Masters 

BURBANK — The Rhythm Masters 
have been signed to an exclusive disk 
pact with the specialty indie label, 
Mobile Fidelity, according to an an- 
nouncement made last week by the 
group’s manager, Emery Clay. 

The seven men will bow on the 
label with a single release tagged 
“Diga Diga Doo” coupled with “Little 
Lisa.” A debut LP has also been set 
for summer release to coincide with 
their tour of the fairs. 


O'Seas Distrib For Mosrite 

NEW YORK — Stan Wagner, man- 
ager of the Ventures, has appointed 
Howard S. Richmond as foreign dis- 
trib for the Mosrite Distributing Co., 
which is owned by the Liberty wax 
artists. 


Epic Rushes "Lilies" Single 

NEW YORK — Epic Records has an- 
nounced the immediate release of a 
single, the “Theme from ‘Lilies of the 
Field’ (Amen),” taken from Epic’s 
original Soundtrack LP of the award- 
winning film. 

Sidney Poitier just won an Academy 
Award for the Best Performance by 
an Actor for his role in the much- 
praised film. 

Epic reported that radio stations 
throughout the country began playing 
the “Theme from ‘Lilies of the 
Field’ ” as soon as the LP was re- 
leased, and a strong demand was 
created for the release of the tune as 
a single. 

“Lilies of the Field” had already 
won numerous awards such as Cue 
Magazine’s Warmest Humanities 
Award in its Movie Roundup of 1963. 
Poitier also won the Silver Bear 
Award for the Best Actor of the 
Year at the 1963 Berlin Film Festival. 


Beatles Invite 

Murray "The K" To London 

NEW YORK— Murray “The K” 
Kaufman will plane to London this 
week (21) for a series of personal 
appearances throughout England, at 
a special invitation from the Beatles. 

The bid for the WINS dee jay’s 
British debut was tendered as a re- 
sult of his connection with the 
Beatles during their recent stay in 
the U.S. The group considered Kauf- 
man to be the foremost exponent of 
their kind of music, and through their 
manager Brian Epstein, arranged a 
series of theater, radio and TV ap- 
pearances to inti’oduce him to 
Britain’s younger set. 

Kaufman, who recently concluded 
a 10-day Easter show at Brooklyn’s 
Fox Theater, became so friendly with 
the Beatles during their stay here 
that he accompanied them on their 
trip to Miami. The friendship has 
continued via transatlantic phone 
calls. 


Talentmasters Studio 
Intros New Echo Sound 

NEW YORK— Who sez there’s noth- 
ing new under the sun — certainly not 
Bob Gallo of Talentmasters Record- 
ing Studio, this city. Gallo informed 
Cash Box last week that he has 
purchased a new type “space-age” 
limiter from Universal of California 
and discovered that when using the 
maximum release time of the limiter 
in conjunction with the studio’s own 
echo, it created a new sounding echo 
and increased the delay time from the 
studio’s normal four seconds to ap- 
proximately nine seconds. 

“There is no loss of presence re- 
gardless of how much echo is being 
used,” says Gallo. In addition, he 
noted that his “limiter echo” is com- 
pletely different from the tape, 
natural and German EMT echo cur- 
rently in use. 


The Searchers Find Editor 



NEW YORK — The Searchers, cur- 
rently riding the Top 100 with their 
Kapp diskings of “Needles And Pins” 
and “Ain’t That Just Like Me,” strike 
a pose with CB’s editor-in-chief, 
Marty Ostrow during a cocktail bash 
at the Friar’s Club hosted by the 
label. The hot British group were 
in the U.S. for an appearance on the 
Ed Sullivan TV’er.

Saner To Colpix 
In Distrib-Rack Sales 

NEW YORK — Ray Lawrence, general 
sales manager of Colpix Records and 
Dimension Records, has announced the 
appointment of Chris Saner as direc- 
tor of distrib and rack sales for the 
two companies. Saner is a vet of a 
number of years in the record indus- 
try. 

His most recent position was na- 
tional sales manager for Reprise Rec- 
ords — a post that he held for three 
years. He has been associated with 
Kapp, Mercury and King Records in 
sales capacities. For a time, Saner 
also headed the B-G-Rack Operation 
in Albany, New York. 


The Band Played On, 

And On, And On, And . . . 

NEW YORK — Raw bleeding fingers, 
swollen hands, a sinus hemmorrhage 
and laryngitis were overcome by a 
band so that it could complete 73 
hours and 42 minutes of continuous 
round-the-clock performing at a rec- 
reation center. 

Earl Lett and The Blendaires, fea- 
turing Duke Edwards, a show hand 
from Boston, did the trick at Roller- 
land in Plattsburgh, N.Y. from 2PM, 
Thursday#. April 2 to 3:42PM on 
Sunday, April 5. 

Throughout the marathon, consid- 
ered a record of its type, radio sta- 
tions carried regular accounts and re- 
mote broadcasts in addition to local 
TV and press coverage. 

Band members exchanged instru- 
ments and took alternating rest and 
meal breaks during the first 48 hours. 
As physical handicaps mounted, mu- 
sicians were fed on stage so that a 
rhythm section and “quality” music, 
two requirements of the marathon, 
could be maintained. 

Actually, the eight man group 
originally planned to play for three 
full days, but it went another 42 
minutes until complete exhaustion 
called an end to the stunt. 

The crew plays all types of music, 
from rock ’n roll to jazz. 


Correction 

NEW YORK — In an April 11 story 
on an upcoming musical, “The Secret 
Life of Walter Mitty,” it was incor- 
rectly stated that Earl Shuman and 
Leon Carr, writers of the show, had 
also written the background music for 
the upcoming Columbia pic, “Lilith.” 
Actually, Kenyon Hopkins is the com- 
poser of the score. 


Spring Classical Push 



NEW YORK — A special Spring pro- 
motion on Mercury’s “Curtain Up!”

catalog, “What’s Your Pleasure.”

many, where the sides were recorded.

NASHBORO RECORDS 

177 3rd Ave. No., Nashville, Tenn. 


NEW YORK — The International 
Record and Music Men’s Club was 
treated to a delightful sampling of 
the droll humor of Roy Berry, Man- 
aging Director of Campbell Connelly 
& Co., Ltd., one of the largest pub- 
lishing firms in England. Berry was 
guest speaker at the club’s informal 
meeting at the Taft Hotel, last Tues- 
day, Apr. 14. 

Visiting these shores to both buy 
and sell songs, Berry described his 
own market from the standpoint of 
radio promotion — and it was done as 
only an Englishman could do it, with 
tongue in cheek. 

He pointed to the minimum number 
of plays available in England for a 
new, important single release. Where- 
as, in America, a hot new single gets 
thousands upon thousands of plays 
during the early potent life of its rise 
to number one, a hot new single in 
England can expect in the vicinity of 
ten plays on radio — this includes ex- 
posure on the BBC and Radio Lux- 
embourg. 

He pointed to a Sunday Morning 
request show on which one could get 
an occasional plug. But, he said, he 
had difficulty when he called and said, 
“Aunt Matilda requests that you play 
Dave Clark’s ‘Glad All Over’ this 
Sunday AM.” 

He made a point of classifying the 
currently hot songs in England as 
“Teenage Merchandise,” rather than 
songs and found it most interesting 
that the Beatles craze was much more 
enthusiastic here than it was in Eng- 
land. 

In a question and answer period 
that followed his address, he clarified 
some technical aspects of publishing 
law for some of the club members. 

Roy was introduced by Mike Gould, 
the pubbery’s American rep. 

Another guest in the audience was 
Bernhard Mikulski, head of CBS 
Records in Germany. 


Prestige Into New 
Musical Horizons 

(Continued from page 10) 

tegory have included Frank Slay’s 
“Beatle Hop” and an English mas- 
ter, “5-4-3-2-1.” 

Rounding out Prestige’s A&R team 
is: Ozzie Cadena, jazz director, and 
Sam Charters, folk director. 

Weinstock also plans a bigger drive 
for spoken-word disks, which the label 
has been taking into account on a 
modest scale on its Lively Arts disk- 
ery. 

Weinstock also disclosed that he has 
streamlined the Prestige catalog. 
Dropped have been the Moodsville, 
Swingsville subsids, as well as the 
Near East and Irish labels. 

Moodsville and Swingsville product 
will be incorporated into the $4.98 
Prestige 7000 line, while the two in- 
ternational labels are moving into the 
Prestige International division. An- 
other grouping is the Prestige 7000 
series, a $4.98 outlet. 

In works is a $1.98 jazz line, which 
Prestige plans to introduce around 
July 1. Weinstock said this low-priced 
diskery was a direct result of the la- 
bel’s success with some 130 cut-outs. 

To be maintained are the Bluesville, 
a big success, according to Weinstock, 
Lively Arts and Prestige Folklore 
diskeries. As for Folklore, Weinstock 
said this line has proved to be the 
label’s most successful line in the 
shortest period. 

Weinstock is counting heavily on 
his distribs to bring his expansion 
ideas across. 

As he puts it: “The strength of the 
distributor in the present industry 
set-up is constantly increasing ... a 
manufacturer grows along with his 
distributors and the interaction of the 
two creates the need for diversifica- 
tion and expansion of a label’s prod- 
uct. It is the manufacturer’s respon- 
sibility to give its distributors a well 
planned, saleable quality product.” 


The Music Press Takes Sol 
Handwerger To Lunch, And 
Gratefully Picks Up The Tab 

NEW YORK— Good guys don’t al- 
ways finish last — and the music in- 
dustry trade press made hay about 
this happy fact last week. 

In doing so, it took Sol Handwerg- 
er, promo head of MGM Records, to 
lunch last week, and went to great 
pains — picking up the tab — so it 
could properly salute Sol’s 24th year 
at MGM, no mean feat, as someone 
noted, in a business famous for daily 
exec changes. 

Most people logically queried why- 
not-wait-a-year -for - Sol’s - 25th - an- 
niversary? Well, to tell the truth, the 
24th anniversary angle was just a 
cover-up, for, as events later proved, 
the trade press under estimated the 
sentimentality and nice-guy-apprecia- 
tion of the disk business. 

Some eighty-six tradesters plus 
press personnel flocked to A1 & Dick’s 
here last Monday (13) — many from 
competing label promo departments — 
to surprise Sol, who happened to be 
at the restaurant for — you guessed it 
— a luncheon engagement with Dom 
Ceruli, one of the trade press’ great 
little helpers in putting the fete 
across. 

Among the many tradesters who 
attended were, of course, execs of 
MGM Records, including topper Ar- 
nold Maxin, sales head Morrie Price 
and others. Maxin said that Sol was 
not only his right hand man, but his 
left as well. 

The trade press itself was admir- 
ably represented by good-humored 
comments by Marty Ostrow (Cash 
Box), Mike Gross (Billboard), Bob 
Rolontz (Music Business), Bob Aus- 
tin (Record World) and, last, but un- 
questionably not least, Herm Schoen- 
feld (Variety), who spouted a bag- 
full of great one-liners to Sol. 

The music portion of the program 
was given over to the staff of Cash 
Box, which as the short-lived Cash 
Box Chorale (not one offer) sere- 
naded Sol with a good-guy lyric 
called “Hello, Solly.” 

Sol was also presented — by Henry 
Brief, RIAA’s bearer of gold record 
tidings, with a gold-record, symboliz- 
ing Sol’s “1 million friends.” 

When Sol dines at home — on spe- 
cial occasions — his wife, Ruth, will be 
able to cover the dinner table with an 
Irish linen table cloth, presented by 
Mort Nasiter of MGM’s ad agency, 
West, Weir and Bartel.

Transworld Artists Ups 
Baxter To Vice Pres. 

NEW YORK — Transworld Artists 
Management, Ltd. has announced the 
appointment of Roy Baxter as vice 
president. Baxter and Bob Redcross, 
another vice pres., will head the 
firm’s operations from the New York 
office at 120 W. 42nd St. 

Presently, Baxter is concentrating 
on securing wax pacts for all the 
company’s artists. Already set is a 
Frankie Lymon release and a promo 
campaign to introduce the grown-up 
Frankie Lymon. 

Transworld also has offices in Zu- 
rich, Switzerland and is seeking a 
London affiliate. 


Sef 1-Hour TV Showing 
Of #/ The Fantasticks" 

NEW YORK — “The Fantasticks,” 
the immensely successful off-B’way 
musical, is getting a one-hour rendi- 
tion on TV next season. NBC-TV’s 
“Hallmark Hall of Fame” show will 
put on the shorter version of a show 
that has played off-B’way for almost 
four years and has grossed more than 
$1 million for its backers. Writers of 
the show are Tom Jones and Harvey 
Schmidt, whose first Broadway effort, 
“’10 in the Shade,” is an established 
hit. The TV presentation of the show 
should prove a boon for the MGM 
original-cast LP, which has sold 
steadily for the company, especially 
following touring productions of the 
show, which have numbered about 
200 both in the U.S. and abroad. 


Elvis Retains Crown 

MIAMI — In a “Battle of Kings” con- 
test sponsored by WFUN between the 
Beatles and Elvis Presley, the Ameri- 
can teen favorite emerged a winner, 
it was announced last week. 

Almost two million South Florida 
voters cast their ballots and the final 
tabulations gave Elvis 989,000 votes 
compared to the Beatles’ total of 810,- 
000. The contest lasted one week with 
thousands of letters and phone calls 
pouring into WFUN. 

Presley is currently the subject of 
an extensive promotional campaign 
by RCA Victor. The label is spot- 
lighting all of the songster’s singles, 
EP’s and albums to salute his 
achievement of 100 million interna- 
tional disk sales. 


Erroll Garner Hits 
Campus Circuit 

NEW YORK— Erroll Garner begins

his new booking reps, General Artists 
Corp., for campus appearances. The 
jazz 88’er is also booked for an ap- 
pearance on the Mike Douglas TV’er 
on the 23rd. 

In 1950, the pianist made his con- 
cert debut at the Music Hall in Cleve- 
land, went on to become an interna- 
tional concert artist and was one of 
the first jazzists to play the summer 
tent circuits. 


Joseph Penna Appointed 
E. B. Marks Music Editor 

NEW YORK — Composer Joseph Pen- 
na has been appointed music editor

Philips' Growth 

(Continued from page 10) 

Philips firm has added another di- 
mension to its diversified look, this 
time through the folk area. 

Because gross figures for the Phil- 
ips label’s sales are never separated, 
but are included with its affiliated 
Mercury, Smash and Fontana compa- 
nies, it is difficult to be specific in 
terms of dollars about the fantastic 
growth pattern Philips has enjoyed 
these past years. But if they were 
made available they, no doubt would 
be stunning.

for an invited audience of producers, 
directors, music publishers and agents. 
The showcase will consist of songs 
written to a variety of plays as part 
of a general workshop exercise. Since 
the assignments were the same for all

wide assortment of musical ideas. 

Composers and lyricists represented 
in this showcase are Joan Bender, 
William Dyer, Carol Hall, Robert 
Hughes, Mel Mitchell, Don Parks, 
Jerry Powell, Jim Rusk, Norman 
Sachs, Treva Silverman, Pat Welch,

tively in the theatrical medium. Last 
Tuesday (April 14) a complete new 
musical was presented, the work of 
Raleigh Bond, Francine Forest and 
Gordon Eis. 

The workshop showcase series of 
three presentations will be concluded 
with the performance of “Dancing, 
Dancing, Goodbye” — a musical based 
on “The Wisteria Trees,” by Josh 
Logan, with book and lyrics by Mar- 
vin Schofer and music by William 
Goldstein — on Tuesday, April 28, at 
the Maidman Theater.

“THE BALLAD OF HERSHEL LAWSON” (2:59) 

[Four Star BMI — Toombs] 

“TAKE MY RING OFF YOUR FINGER” (2:50) 
[Cedarwood BMI — Joy, Lewis] 

CARL SMITH (Columbia 43033) 

Carl Smith, who is still clicking with “Pillow That Whispers,” comes 
up with a potent follow-up stanza with this commercial newie tabbed 
“The Ballad Of Hershel Lawson.” The medium-paced, chorus-backed 
tune is about a self-centered moonshiner who eventually causes the 
death of his wife and son. Eye it. The attractive coupler, “Take My 
Ring Off Your Finger,” is a rhythmic tradition-oriented hillbilly weeper 
read with poise and authority by the chanter. 


“THE FACE” (2:21) [Glad BMI— Montgomery, Hayes] 

“I WILL ALWAYS KEEP LOVING YOU” (2:28) [Glad BMI— Mathis] 
MELBA MONTGOMERY (United Artists 705) 

Melba Montgomery seems destined to pull loads of coin with this 
first-rate hitsville contender called “The Face.” The side is a slow- 
moving, bluegrass-styled ballad in which the lark effectively weeps 
about a lost love. Tune’s a natural for heavy airplay. On “I Will Always 
Keep Loving You” the chirp proclaims her eternal love for that certain 
special guy of her dreams. 


“I’M HANGING UP THE PHONE” (2:02) 

[Yonah & Pearl D BMI — Rogers] 

“JUST A MESSAGE” (3:04) [Peer Int’l BMI— Cassell] 

CARL & PEARL BUTLER (Columbia 43030) 

The vet hubby-wife duo have enough things going for them on this 
Columbia entry, “I’m Hanging Up The Phone,” to zoom up the charts 
in no time flat. The tune is a rousing, high-spirited happy bluser about 
the end of a romance. On the flip, “Just A Message,” Carl solos a 
plaintive, slow-moving, shuffle-beat tale about a guy who pleads for his 
gal to stay with him. 


“I SAW YOUR FACE IN THE MOON” (2:23) [Leeds ASCAP— Elder] 
“DON’T DROP IT” (2:10) [American BMI— Fell] 

BILLY GRAMMER (Decca 31618) 

The Decca hit-maker unleashes his potent, wide-range vocal talents 
full-blast on this power-packed release from Decca. The top side here, 
“I Saw Your Face In The Moon,” is a contagious, chorus-backed, pop- 
styled item about romantic duplicity. The other end, “Don’t Drop It,” 
is an easy-listening, shufflin’ romantic novelty essayed with verve and 
assurance by Grammer.

BROWNS (RCA Victor 8348) 

(B+) “THEN I’LL STOP LOVING 
YOU” (2:14) [American 
BMI — Reeves] Jim Edward takes the 
vocal spotlight on this medium- 
break with some top-notch lyrics. 
Watch it. 

(B+) “I KNOW MY PLACE" 
(2:12) [Acuff-Rose BMI — 
Loudermilk] More fine country 
sounds. This one’s a slow-moving ode 
about a love that can never exist. 


EDDIE RABBITT 

(20th Century-Fox 474) 

(B-f) “SIX NIGHTS AND SEVEN 
DAYS” (2:28) [Painted 
Desert BMI — Hayes] Newcomer 
Eddie Rabbitt could well make a 
national name for himself with this 
pulsating, fast-moving, chorus- 
backed affair about a fellow who 
wants to get back with his ex-gal. 

(B+) “NEXT TO THE NOTE” 
(2:44) [Shapiro, Bernstein 
ASCAP — Martin, Riela] On this end 
the songster offers a tender, shuffle- 
beat tradition-oriented country 
weeper. 


LEON McAULIFFE (Capitol 5168) 

(B+) “BLUESVILLE, U.S.A.” 

(2:20) [Glaser BMI— Fran- 
zese, Christensen, Glaser] The ork- 
ster-chanter should really please his 
fans with this easy-going, chorus- 
backed ode about that place that 
people go after a broken romance. 

(B+) “THINGS TO REMEMBER” 
(2:02) [Pamper BMI— Nel- 
son] Here’s a lively, uptempo swing- 
oriented western chorus-backed item 
with a pretty melodic line. 


BILL CARLISLE (Hickory 1254) 

(B+) “SHANGHAI ROOSTER” 
(2:17) [Acuff-Rose BMI— 
Carlisle] Bill Carlisle should garner 
plenty of spins with this folksy, low- 
down, bluesy novelty with some 
effective, first-rate sound effects. 

(B) “BIG JOHN HENRY’S 
GIRL” (2:30) [Tuckahoe BMI 
— Hathcock, Winkler] This time out 
Carlisle turns in an impressive per- 
formance about the sweetheart of 
that famous steel-driving man.

COUNTRY 
ROUND UP 


A new record was set recently at 
the Annual Fireman’s Show in Hous- 
ton, Texas when 27,450 persons flowed 
into the Sam Houston Coliseum to see 
a host of country music’s top stars in 
action. W. E. “Lucky” Moeller, presi- 
dent of Denny-Moeller Talent, who 
has handled the talent for the show 
for many years, said the show con- 
tinues to grow each year, and that 


posure to a live show. Tours are not 
being set up whereby stations can 
book the complete package on a per- 
formance basis and promote the show 
in their towns. Stars already set for 
the package include David Houston 
and the Kimberleys. 

Capitol’s Buddy Cagle and personal 
manager Don Sessions are currently

the acceptance at the two shows this 
year was splendid. Curley Rhoes, na- 
tional promotion manager for Cedar- 
wood Publishing Company, was again 
on hand to handle the giant promotion 
job for the firemen. This marks the 
fifth year that Rhodes has contributed 
to the solid success of the event. 
Mayor Louie Welch and Fire Chief 
Joe W. Lobue, who were introduced 
by emcee Red Sovine, were highly 
complimentary of the stars and the 
type of entertainment presented. 
Headliners appearing on the show 
were Porter Wagoner, Bobby Bare, 
Jim Reeves, Ferlin Husky, Norma 
Jean, Sovine, Del Wood, and Wade 
Ray. 

Wanda Jackson is getting big ac- 
tion on both sides of her Capitol sin- 
gle, “The Violet And A Rose” and 
“To Tell You The Truth.” The lark is 
currently working a long tour of one 
nighters and her schedule for the re- 
mainder of the month includes p.a.’s 
in Pittsburgh, Houston, Corpus Chris- 
ti, Albuquerque, Denver, Cheyenne, 
etc. Rodney and the Blazers are work- 
ing the dates with the songstress. 

Business is increasing in ’64, ac- 
cording to Bob Neal. “Each month of 
this year is showing a significant in- 
crease over 1963” said the talent sta- 
ble topper recently. Neal is driving 
hard having just announced the book- 
ing of the first country package ever 
to play the famed Du Quoin Fair on 
August 30. Package set with coopera- 
tion of E. O. Stacy of UTM-GAS in- 
cludes Hank Snow, Ferlin Husky, Ray 
Price, Bill Anderson, Skeeter Davis, 
Jimmy Dickens, Melba Montgomery, 
Gordon Terry, String Bean and the 
Carolina Cloggers. 

The Justice Brothers are sporting 
their new Del-Ray release of “Tears 
At the Grand Ole Opry.” Jocks may 
get sample copies pronto by writing 
to the label at 4 Center St., Harring- 
ton, Delaware. 

Clyde Beavers, Martha Carson, 
Charlie Louvin, Lois Lane, the Trails- 
men Trio and Roy Aldridge are cur- 
rently all working a southern tour of 
one-niters playing dates in Texas, 
Mississippi, and Louisiana. 

Billy Deaton pens from down San 
Antonio way that the Faron Young 
radio show is now going great guns 
on twenty-two stations in Texas, 
Louisiana and Mississippi. 

Tillman Franks Enterprises in 
Shreveport, Louisiana has a package 
deal that is going to be presented to 
country music radio stations. Pack- 
age is especially geared for those 
markets that the big shows haven’t 
been making. Franks feels that lots 
of the smaller towns cannot put up a 
big guarantee and therefore their 
towns are missing country music ex- 


on a promotion tour of northern Cali- 
fornia with Buddy’s new deck, “The 
Gold Cup.” Side has been getting 
picks across the nation and looms as 
another big one for Buddy. 

The steering committee of the 
Nashville Chapter of the National 
Academy of the Recording Arts and 
Sciences (NARAS) recently nomina- 
ted 40 leading members of the Music 
City music fraternity as candidates 
for the chapter’s first board of gov- 
ernors. At the same time, it was an- 
nounced that Dick Jablow, attorney 
for the New York City NARAS Chap- 
ter and John Scott Trotter, president 
of the national NARAS group, will 
be in Nashville for the first general 
meeting of the Nashville chapter set 
for April 20th at the Columbia Rec- 
ords’ Studio. Numerous topics will be 
discussed at the meeting including the 
proposed constitution and bylaws, the 
election of the board of governors, 
and the membership drive. 

Lark Dewy Davenport, currently 
creating some national excitement 
with her HI-G LO-C deck of “Big 
Cowboy,” is off on a string of p.a.’s 
and one-niters in Texas and Arizona. 

Ray Sanders is all excited about his 
Stadium newie, “Lonesome And Me” 
b/w “This Heart Is Breaking In Two.” 
Ray goes back to the Nashville sound 
on this release, as were previous suc- 
cessful Liberty entries. 


An open house featuring plenty of 
country music was held recently on 
WRJW-Picayune, Miss., and B. J. 
Johnson was on hand heading up the 
festivities. Chris Collins, Slepper Re- 
cording Artist was also on hand for 
the show and sang his latest, “Learn- 
in’.” 

Little Richie Johnson reports from 
his office that he now has copies of 
a slew of releases including “Widow I 
Maker” by Jimmy Martin, “Autobiog- " 
raphy” by Cowboy Copas, “I Can’t 
Stand It” by Bill Philips, etc. Dee- 
jays wanting any or all of the above- — 
mentioned decks should write to I

The Beatles were Guests of Honor at a private luncheon party hosted by 
Cash Box recently at Twickenham Studios where the group are working on 
their first major film. Highlight of the affair was the presentation to the boys 
of three Cash Box International Gold Awards for their American chart toppers 
“She Loves You;” “Twist and Shout” and “Can’t Buy Me Love,” and an Inter- 
national Silver Award for “Please, Please Me” which climbed to the No. 4 
position in the Cash Box Top 100. The presentations were made by Cash Box 
vice president George Albert. The Beatles received their first Cash Box Inter- 
national Gold Award for “I Want To Hold Your Hand” when they were in 
America earlier this year. 

Guests at the luncheon included Sir Joseph Lockwood (Chairman of E.M.I. 
Ltd); L. G. Wood (Managing Director E.M.I. Records Ltd.); Richard Dawes 
(E.M.I. International); George Martin (E.M.I. a & r manager); Dick James 
(publisher); Brian Sommerville (Beatles press officer); Richard Lester (di- 
rector of Beatles film); Bud Ornstein (Production Chief United Artists); 
Walter Shenson (Producer) and Tony Howard (Assistant). Cash Box was 
represented by Mr. and Mrs. George Albert and Neville Marten. 

The independent label, Island Records, specialists in Bluebeat music are to 
get national distribution via EMI Records. This is a big step forward for 
Island, which is now entering its third year of operation. It recently negotiated 
with the r & b Sue label of America to distribute its catalog and has just 
issued “I Can’t Stand It” by The Soul Sisters now climbing the American top 
100. Firm also has Black Swan (Bluebeat) and Jump Up (Calypso) labels. 
Island’s managing director, Christopher Blackwell, recently a & r’d for Fontana 
“My Boy Lollipop” by bluebeat singer Millie which has zoomed into the Top 
Twenty. Thanks to the exploitation given to this single Millie’s EP on the 
Island label “Millie and her Boyfriends” is garnering a lot of sales. Blackwell 
tells us that the firm is building up a catalog of British recording artists and 
plans are being laid for them to enter the pop field in the near future. 

Michael Arends of Paul Arends Music, Germany, visiting London for a few 
days looked in at the Cash Box office. Michael called on all his music publish- 
ing friends including Burlington Music, Good Music, Dick James and Ambas- 
sador Music. 

Decca has issued the original version of this year’s Eurovision winner “Non 
Ho L’Eta Amarti” by Gigliola Cinquetti. Label has also put out an English 
version — new lyrics by Buddy Kaye and Philip Springer — by South African 
born Dana Valery. Three other versions are also available. Vera Lynn on HMV, 
Christine Holmes, a 17 year old schoolgirl making her debut on Mercury and 
a trumpet solo by Teddy Mertens on Oriole. Copyright owned here by Chappell. 

Having tasted chart success with “5-4-3-2-1,” Manfred Mann hopes to do so 
again with its latest HMV single, “Hubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble” — a joint 
composition by all five of the group. With a series of TV dates lined up and 
a season at London’s Marquee Club, the boys should soon be counting their 
way to the top. 

During the Festival of Light Entertainment being held in Switzerland a 
special edition of the popular A-R TV program, “Ready, Steady, Go,” will be 
recorded at the Casino at Montreux for transmission here on April 24. Artists 
taking part will be the Rolling Stones, Kenny Lynch, Petula Clark, Les Surfs 
and Les Missiles. Forty dancers from the teenage audience participating will 
be specially flown out to take part in the program. “Ready, Steady, Go,” which 
concentrates on teenage pop music, had its first showing in August last year 
since when it has gained in popularity and has one of the top pop ratings. 

The American musical “She Loves Me” opens here April 29 headed by Anne 
Rogers, Gary Raymond, Gary Miller and Rita Moreno. Publishers Valando 
Music has a host of singles of the title song including Julie Andrews 
(Columbia); Jack Jones (M.G.M.); Ethel Ennis (RCA) Lena Horne (M.G.M.); 
and Gogi Grant M.G.M.). Frank Chacksfield has waxed an album for Decca. 
The original Broadway cast is issued here on MGM and Columbia are planning 
a Bristish cast LP. 

At the Festival Hall on April 29 the premiere takes place of “The Finest 
Hours” — life story of Sir Winston Churchill. Ron Grainer, responsible for the 
highly successful ‘Maigret Theme’ among others, has written the score and to 
promote the music Chappells, in association with the film’s producer Jack La 
Vien, have formed a new company to be known as La Vien Music. After its 
premiere the film moves into the Columbia season. 

Sid Green of Edwin Morris Music loves the Beatles. He also loves the Care- 
frees. And he’s hoping that everybody will love their recording of “We Love 
You Beatles” available here on Oriole. 

Quickies: Silver Disks for quarter million sales awarded to the Batchelors 
for “I Believe” (Decca) and newcomers Peter and Gordon for “A World With- 
out Love” (Columbia) ... To coincide with Roy Orbison’s third British tour

DENMARK 

Knut Mork of Morks Musikforlag back from a one day biz visit to Stockholm. 

. . . S. L. G. Gottlieb, head of SGA (EMI) behind his desk after visiting head- 
quarters in London. . . . American country & western group including Jim 
Reeves, Chet Atkins, The Anita Kerr Singers and Bobby Bare in town for per- 
formances. . . . Mr. & Mrs. George Albert of Cash Box, New York, Neville 
Marten, European Director of Cash Box, London, spent the weekend in Copen- 
hagen, meeting trade people. . . . Pye recording artist Kenny Ball in Copen- 
hagen for concerts. . . . Swedish group The Spotnicks gave their first concert 
in Copenhagen recently. They have been successful all over Europe in their 
space costumes, but the heavy entertainment tax system in Denmark made it 
necessary that they appeared in their ‘civil’ costumes. Later this month they 
give concerts in the U.S., at Carnegie Hall, etc. 

New sheet music from Imudico A/S includes orchestra folios of “Diggety 
Doggety” with Danish lyrics (Hvad Er Du Ude Pa?) by Robert Arnold, “I 
Only Want To Be With You” with Danish lyrics (Det Har Jeg Altid Onsket 
Mig) by Peter Mynte and the Danish Eurovision Song Contest entry “Sangen 
Om Dig” composed by Aksel V. Rasmussen with lyrics by Mogens Dam. 

Gitte Haenning, now on her way to New York, has done a German record 
where she sings duet with Rex Gildo. The titles on the Columbia release are 
“Zwei Auf Einer Bank” and “Wunderland Der Grossen Liebe.” Other recent 
EMI releases here include “Good Golly Miss Molly” with The Swinging Blue 
Jeans on HMV, “Over You” with Freddie and The Dreamers on Columbia and 
“Just One Look” with The Hollies on Parlophone. New American releases from 
EMI: “Mary Jane” by Del Shannon on Stateside and “Fun, Fun, Fun” by 
the Beach Boys on Capitol. 

NORWAY 

Entering the charts this week here, as well as in Denmark and Sweden, is 
Elvis Presley with his RCA Victor recording “Viva Las Vegas.” Still on the 
top here is Wenche Myhre on Triola with the local copyright “La Meg Vsere 
Ung” (Let Me Be Young), followed by two recordings with the Beatles. 

A lot of publicity is given here to “Hello Dolly,” released on Kapp here. 
However, a recent Cash Box report about the release of the record in Scandi- 
navia gave as a result that the record was withdrawn upon request by the 
original publisher. The Louis Armstrong recording originates from a musical, 
and should not be released here before the musical opens in Scandinavia. 
Judging from known planes, it might take another year before the musical 
will be presented here, all stages here have their programs fixed for the next 
12 months, at least. 

Another of the songs from the local Song Festival here, “En god gammel 
firkantet vals” (An old square waltz) by Einar Schanke and Alfred Naess, has 
been recorded by Elisabeth Granneman on Triola. Other releases from Egil 
Monn Iversen A/S include the Italian “Non Ho L’Eta with Gigliola Cinquetti 
on Triola, “I Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now” with The Danish Sharks on 
Triola, “Judy Loves Me” with Johnny Crawford on Sonet, and “Have You 
Ever Been Lonely” with The Caravelles on the same label. 

Latest news from A/S Nera (RCA Victor here) includes four new LP albums 
on RCA Victor and two LP albums on RCA Camden, several singles and EPs 
and six Dynagroove albums. The company is doing very well with “I Love 
You Because” with Jim Reeves and “Viva Las Vegas” with Elvis Presley at the 
moment. 

SWEDEN 

Local group The Streaplers from Gothenburg awarded a Silver Disk for 
50,000 sold copies of their Odeon recording “Diggety Doggety” at a special 
party at the dance restaurant Bal Palace at end of March. The group has now 
moved to the Columbia label and is expected to have another hit with their 
recent record, “Johnny B. Goode.” United States has shown interest in the 
group, Anders Holmstedt, head of SGA (EMI here) told Cash Box. The group 
will have their first LP released sometimes in May. 

Philips gave a press party to welcome British jazz musician Kenny Ball, the 
Pye recording artist, who was here for a one night concert, arranged by Simon 
Brehm. 

Bernt Baune of Gehrmans told Cash Box that he has obtained Duke Elling- 
ton’s “I’m Gonna Go Fishin’ ” for Sweden. The title here is “Jag Skall Ut Och 
Fiska.” 

Latest releases from Scan-Disc Recording Co. includes “That She Does”/ 
“Well All Right” with The Wizards, “Down Yonder”/“Tonight You Belong To 
Me” with Kringlorna (The Ring-Twisted Bisquits), two Swedish girls known 
privately as Angela Persson and Birgitta Gigg. They might have one of their 
records released in Britain and there is a hit that they should use the name 
The Swe-Gals which might sound a little easier to foreign ears. Finally, Scan- 
Disc has released an EP, “All Night Long,” with Lecuona Cuban Boys. There 
is also an LP with the latter orchestra, opening here at the summer restaurant 
Tyrol next week. Scan-Disc might do another LP with them this summer, 
P.A. Boquist of Scan-Disc told Cash Box. Lil Malmkvist, another Scan-Disc 
artist, will record a Swedish version of the German song “Drei Musketiere” 
next week, Boquist said.

The recent RCA Victor Nashville Show featuring Chet Atkins, Jim Reeves, 
Bobby Bare and the Anita Kerr Singers may be a sign of things to come in 
Germany. C&W music which has always enjoyed a certain popularity in 
Germany especially through the AFN (American Forces Network) got a great 
shot in the arm from this show. The stars did a fine job and the fact that they 
came on this tour without pay just to promote their records and their music 
should be a signal to many artists trying to break through in Europe. The 
tour was not a great financial success but the public that came was enthusiastic 
and joined in the festivities. 

The Beatles, who have stormed the charts all over the world, are now getting 
extra special publicity through a great number of records coming out in Ger- 
many and in the German language referring to the group. The most popular 
subject seems to be their hair. 

Karlheinz Basse’s Musichouse Film Company has offered Pat Boone a role 
in a new German music film being done in the next weeks in Yugoslavia. Pat 
hasn’t accepted yet, but it could lead to great things for the popular U.S. 
singer whose records in the German language are storming the charts here. 

Philips Records is giving special emphasis this month to its “musical” LP 
production which includes “The World of Musicals” featuring music from 
several popular Broadway shows and several artists, “My Fair Lady,” in 
German, which is an absolute best seller with the original Berlin cast, “Annie 
Get Your Gun” also in German which is also moving well, “West Side Story” 
b/w “Porgy and Bess” done in German and English and “Irma La Douce” in 
German with the Berlin cast. 

Ring Press is starting a big campaign for GEMA to push payment of the 
$3.00 fee in year for the recording of radio programs on tape for tape recorder 
owners. GEMA feels that this fee will protect the authors from the great 
number of people buying tape recorders and taping the hits instead of buying 
single records which retail here now for $1.19. 

Lester Sims of Daffodil Music in New York is very active with his new DFD 
Records looking for masters from Europe. The firm will specialize in foreign 
product for the USA. 

Rudy Schroeder of Will Meisel Music is very busy pushing “Harem” by 
Acker Bilk which is selling well here. He’s also got new German goodies of 
“W'onderous Are The Ways Of Love” by Gino on Polydor, a new Heidi Bruhl 
recording, “I’m Watching You” by Little Peggy March and several Paul Anka 
hits to do business with. 

Heino “Calcutta” Gaze is having luck publishing wise with the new Peggy 
Peters disk on Ariola and “Little Effin’ Annie” in German by Ted Hobbs on 
Polydor. He is also the writer on the new hit rocking record “Shake Hands” 
by Draft Deutscher and his Magics on Decca. 

NEWS FROM SWITZERLAND 

Edition Coda sent its monthly news letter out to inform us that Christian 
Wolff, Dr. Daun and Walter Kuhnert of Doblingers Music in Vienna recently 
visited Zurich for talks with the publishing house as did Gerd Hammerling of 
Nero Music from Berlin, Mr. Fruechtnicht of Tip Records, Hamburg and Fred 
Jackson of London who was pushing the German waxing of “You Can Never 
Stop Me Loving You” which is topping the Swiss charts. “Mr. Music Man of 
Switzerland,” Cedric Dumont, visits London soon for talks with British 
publishers and will stay at the Washington Hotel on Curzon Street as of 
April 27. Humphrey Lyttleton and his band just closed out a months work at 
the Chikito nitery in Berne. Other top foreign artists recently in Switzerland 
included Paul Anka, Duke Ellington, Theilonious Monk and tenorman Dexter 
Gordon.

President Cabat has just left for an inspection of his commercial network 
chains in France. Hazan has now been informed of this. President Meyerstein 
is back with us again. Eddie Barclay is contemplating a trip to the States, 
with his prime designation being Hollywood. President of the Bel Air Record 
Company, Nicole Barclay, is back again in Paris after a quick trip to Brussels 
where she met Pelgim to whom she seems to have offered the representation 
of the Bel Air catalog for the Belgian territory. 

Let’s now write about the number one event in France. It is the thundering 
acceptance of the song “Non Ho L’Eta” and also the Italian lark Giliola Cin- 
quetti who offered the song successfully at the Eurovision song contest. Actu- 
ally, two vocal versions of this tune exist at this time of writing on the 
French market. Firstly, one on the Bel Air label read by Patricia Carli and 
tabbed “Je Suis A Toi.” Secondly, on the Festival label, the Italian version by 
Giliola Cinquetti. These two recordings are very good and it seems that the 
song is destined to become a best-seller in France. Lucky publisher Editions 
Barclay, directed by Philippe Boutet. We now move to other French songs 
and mainly the others in the Eurovision festival. But don’t forget that “Elle 
Etait Si Joile” did not even place in last year’s Eurovision song contest and 
this did not hinder this tune from being a number one tune on the French 
charts for several weeks. Thanks to the talent of Pierard, who is now setting 
to work on the song rendered by Romuald that Pierard has in co-publishing 
with Pathe Marconi. 

Let’s continue our column with the novelty releases from Pathe. First of all, 
a new disking by Alice Dona tabbed “Plus Je T’Embrasse,” which is the 
French adaptation of “Heart Of My Heart.” Add to this Melodie Paris’ “Ma 
Photo” and “Une Voiture Rouge.” After this we find Franco di Rienzo who 
gave us some hits, is now stumping us. His new one is “Sally Ann” and “Qui 
Le Premier.” Old standbys seem to be coming out on the market again. For 
example an LP of Spanish successes by Mariano and among these “El Reli- 
cario” and “Valencia.” A disk by Peggy with “La Soiree Est Finie.” Two 
novelty releases worth mentioning are one by Adamo tabbed “Si Jamais” and 
“Quand Les Roses” and the other by Camillo in French called “L’Amour” and 
“Si L’Amour.” Georges Moustaki who has real talent for writing his songs 
(just to jog your memory “Mylord”) has just supplied us with an E.P. in- 
cluding “Nevada” and “Eldorado.” Roger Pierre and Jean Marc Thibault have 
just grooved some old French military such as “La Madelon,” “La Madelon De 
Victorie.” Another release worth writing about in way of a 10’er of Marie Dubas 
is “Pedro” and “Mon Legionnaire.” It’s a real pleasure to listen to these tunes 
again. In the series film music, an E.P. of the original soundtrack of the film 
entitled “La Mort D’un Tueur,” penned by Aminollah Hossein and Andre 
Hossein. 

To end up our short weekly column let’s talk about a birth or more or less 
the rebirth of a record mark that we believed dead and buried. The record 
company in question Vega which was taken over by the President Froment. 
The representatives of Vega are informing the labels of a release by way of a 
new E.P. by Ray Charles and an LP by Fats Domino. It seems that little by 
little Vega will find a place in the sun thanks to the efforts of President Fro- 
ment. 

Late flash just come in, and to jog your memory let’s point out that April 
25th a Vogue-Hallyday lawsuit will be pleaded for the last time, before the 
Paris justice. While on the subject of Hallyday let’s say that he is preparing 
to enter military service, this will probably begin about May 15th. A cocktail 
will no doubt be offered for this event. 

We recently had the great pleasure to meet with Wolfsohn who announced 
to us the new recording session by Francoise Hardy. He is quite satisfied with 
the result. Frangoise has cut eight titles, just enough to release another album. 
The most interesting tunes seem to be “Jaloux,” “Apprends Le Moi” and “Fais 
Le Passer.” 

Just had a visit from Charley Talar the new plugger with Tutti. He tells us 
about a new lark in his stable by name of Marianne Mille, who is actually the 
daughter of another French lark, Francoise Veran. Young Marianne records on 
the R.C.A. label and among her titles she has a bright item called “Oublie De 
Pleurer” from the Tutti repertory. Must say that Georges Boujnah seems 
to really like this song. A new disk by the Marines, who clicked recently with 
“Connais-tu,” is tabbed “Hey Dean, Hey Jean.” 

Alain Barriere has just canned the song “Ma Vie,” which is certainly in line 
with his last tune “Elle Etait Si Jolie.” Charley Talar is very satisfied with the 
latest groovings by Johnny Hallyday such as “Les Guitares Jouent,” which is 
the French tag of “Surfin’ Hootenanny.” 

Let’s now switch over to Romuald and mention that his Eurovision song 
rendered by him at the festival has now been recorded by Bernard Stephane, 
and tabbed “Ou Sont-Elles Passees.” Dalida has also grooved a new disk, and 
one title belongs to the Tutti catalog, this is “Je Ne Sais Plus,” the French 
adaptation of “You Don’t Own Me.” 

This is really a week of meeting people. This time we met Denise Clement 
who at last has finally supplied us with the titles canned by Pierre Perret: 
“Sauf Moi” and “Vous Dont Je Suis Fou.” Seems to be the best songs, but 
apart from these we have also “La Tigress’” and “Noel.” Let’s point out that 
all of these songs have been penned by Perret himself. 

Elsewhere we have been informed of a release called “Guitare Bach,” of 
which we have already written, about in a previous column, and which is played 
by the talented guitarist Benichou. Let’s now talk about an event typically 
Parisian by way of a record entitled “L’Obsede Textuel,” penned and sung by 
Roland Bacri. At the occasion of the release of this recording a cocktail party 
was given in the Rue du Vieux Colombier. Denise Clement also informs us that 
she has signed a contract with Patrick Lejeune who was the former singer in 
the Schtroumpfs group on the President label. The first disk by Lejeune will be 
released in the Contact series. Good news has just been announced, Dionne 
Warwick will be the star presented by the French Tele during the 7th Inter- 
national festival of the Television, scheduled for April 30th at Cannes. 

A novelty release by Richard Anthony will be out on the French market at 
the end of the month, but unfortunately at this time of writing no idea at all 
of the titles. Just a couple of words about the very young lark France Gall 
who seems to be stepping out with her title “Ne Sois Si Bete,” and who now 
supplies us with “N’ecoute Pas Les Idoles.” This songstress is a Bagatelle 
product and distributed by Philips. Another good song by France Gall is “Les 
Rubans Et La Fleur.”

For practically a whole week, due to the political situation in Brazil, all 
radio stations were broadcasting the same programs on the air, which con- 
sisted of news and military marches. For that reason there were no plugs and 
all diskeries and pubberies held their releases until the situation became normal 
again. This may bring some great changes on the charts and probably some 
important ones. 

Although in the U.S. there is the idea that Bossa Nova is no longer what it 
was a few months ago, here in Brazil it seems to be taking new strength once 
again. Oswaldo Gurzoni, manager of Odeon in Sao Paulo, announced for 
instance that the LP that Caterina Valente recorded in Hamburg, on which the 
internationally famous singer gives an excellent rendition in Portuguese of 
twelve BN numbers by Luiz Bonfa, has been having an extraordinary reception 
by the international public. We believe that this waxing of the versatile artist 
will bring back Brazilian music to the charts all over. 

Enrique Lebendiger, president of Fermata, also has a new release of the best 
Bossa Nova quality: the second LP of Pedrinho Mattar, even better than his 
first. Pedrinho is excellent at the piano and his boys have the right beat. Other 
releases of the same company: “Forget Him” with Bobby Rydell (Cameo), 
“Irma La Douce” (United Artists) and also “Chubby Checker” and “A1 Caiola,” 
respectively (also UA), all on EP. 

Jairo Rodrigues, manager of Musidisc in Sao Paulo reports: the company is 
busy and very enthusiastic about its new recording studio, which will be ready 
in about 30 or 40 days. This experienced music pro considers the new studio 
the most modern, and based on a revolutionary system (more details later 
which will lead to the future waxings of that label a quality of sound not yet 
accomplished in this country. Jairo also told us about his new program, which 
consists of creating a cast with Sao Paulo artists of the pop music, with a view 
to an artistic and commercial expansion. 

RGE is soon to release an interesting LP of erudite music: it will be the 1st. 
one of Antonio Carlos Barbosa Lima for this label. This unusual guitar (viola) 
soloist, although being only 19 years old, has recorded already 6 other EP’s 
for Chantecler, making him one of the artists with the longest list of waxings 
in this country. When Antonio Carlos cut his first record he was only 13! We 
had a chance to talk to the young and talented artist who considers this last 
his best LP. It was also one of the best cared and most expensive records 
lately, on account of the selected symphonic orchestra which accompany the 
already considered eminent soloist. Barbosa Lima’s LP “Viola Brasileira,” cut 
for Chantecler, won a special prize as best record of the year. Another reward 
conquered by the young artist was the Gold Medal for the best soloist of the 
year. The young-man gave 250 recitals in all the important towns of this 
country and was also the first Brazilian classical guitarist ever to play outside 
of Brazil, namely in Argentina where he had an enormous success with the 
public as well as the critics. He also appears on several TV programs in Sao 
Paulo and other places. In his new LP, besides a first audition by the remark- 
able Brazilian composer, A. Theodoro Nogueira, he includes several well known 
classical pieces, among which a Fugue by J. S. Bach, which is one of Antonio 
Carlos’ “piece de resistence.” Barbosa Lima was born in Sao Paulo and started 
his “viola” studies when he was 9 years old, with the famous Uruguayan, Isaias 
Savio, who was himself surprised with the natural talent and fast progress of 
his pupil. One year later, Antonio Carlos Barbosa Lima won his first award, 
among other grown up soloists, and that started this vertiginous career of 
successes, which however is far to have reached its climax, due to the young 
age of the talented artist. 

Audio Fidelity do Brazil, says Luis Nocargel, is also releasing an LP by a 
young guitar (viola) soloist: Maria Livia Sao Marcos. Works by Vivaldi, Villa- 
Lobos, Isaias Savio and others.

Cash Box — April 25, 1964 International Section 




Nestor Selasco, president of Sicamericana S.A., was present at the meeting 
of the Latin American Federation of Record Producers, held in Mexico April 
13 through 15. After the confab, Selasco flew to Los Angeles and will also 
visit New York before returning to Buenos Aires. 

- The life of dee jays and press people in Buenos Aires was enlightened by 

some social activities: Music Hall’s Los Pick Ups, vocal teen group, organized 
a party to celebrate the second anniversary of its first recording. The meet 
took place in a Boca restaurant, and was well appreciated by the guests. Phil- 
ips, on its side, rushed a cocktail party honoring Michel Legrand, who came 
to Buenos Aires to be present at the Sixth International Film Festival, Friday, 
April 10. 

Walter Thiers informs about the awards to Jazz Production 1963 given at 
the Sixth National Jazz Congress, to be held this month. Names include Ro- 
' dolfo Auchurron (Composer), Buby Lavecchia (Orchestra), Alberto Favero 
(Pianist), “Jazz By Lopez Ruiz” (Jazz Record), “La Terraza” (Soundtrack 
music) and Jorge Anders Quartet (Small Group) among others. 

Adolfo Pino of RCA infos that his label is planning to release the album 
recorded by Neil Sedaka in Mexico some weeks ago, featuring new songs in 
Spanish. There will also be the first LP by Mexican chanter Cesar Costa, and 
a single by Los Indios Tabajaras: US hit, “Maria FJena.” Among RCA’s 
latest releases are “Que Suerte” by Yioleta Rivas and “Es Hermoso Vivir” 
by Palito Ortega. 

Americo Severini of Phonogram (Philips) infos about two new “promotional” 
records released by his diskery: one of them is a 10" LP devoted to the Cos- 
quin Folk Music Festival, held recently in the Province, of Cordoba,, and al- 
ready covered by Cash Box. The platter includes new artists Jovita Diaz, Trio 
Guayacan, Los Runa and well known names Los Cantores del Alba and Los 
Andariegos, and is released under the Polydor banner. The other one is “Alta 
► Tension-Vol. IV” and presents Sonia, Los Tainmys, Luis Dimas and others. 

Roberto Lambertucci of Neumann Publishers has a new tango to promote: 
title is “Llora Mi Piano” (My Piano Cries), and has been composed by Mari- 
ano Mores. Other Neumann items are the music from “Seven Days In May,” 
which is being shown very successfully in Buenos Aires these days, and “Hoy 
Ureo En Dios,” penned by Panzeri and recorded by Nestor Fabian (Odeon) 
and Raul Lavie (RCA). 

Jorge Esperon of Tonodisc has just returned from a trip to Chile, where 
he studied the possibilities of release for the product he represents in this 
area. Besides his local production (which will be increased this year, accord- 
ing to Esperon), he represents several American labels not only in Argentina, 
but also in Chile and Uruguay. Releases in Uruguay are done through Tono- 
disc Uruguaya; thus this trip was done to complete the coverage of these 
territories. 

Also back from Chile is Mauricio Brenner of Fermata, who went to San- 
tiago to promote the repertoire controlled by his pubbery and ink new tunes 
for world distribution. Fermata is now working on the new Anka tune, “Ades- 
so No,” and getting local versions for it. The first one has been made by Juan 
Ramon, for the Disc Jockey label. 

f The latest tune contracted by Gigi Gallo’s pubbery, Fortissimo Americana, 

is “Te Anno Visto Domenica Sera.” Originally copyrighted in Italy, it has 
' been recorded by Peppino de Capri for Odeon. This record has been already 
released in Argentina. 

Romiglio Giacompol of Smart Publishers busy with “La Noche Es Nuestra,” 
a song recorded by Rafael Hidalgo for Music Hall, “Me Fui Enamorando De 
Ti,” waxed by Johnny Dorelli in Italy and “Samba Toff,” a Brazilian product 
waxed by Orlann Divo in that country and Yuyu Da Silva (Music Hall) in 
Argentina. 

The latest releases from Odeon are “Twist And Shout” and “I Saw Her 
\ Standing There,” of course by the Beatles, and “Dengues” by Centro American 
star Damaso Perez Prado and his orchestra. There are also singles by Ramona 
Galarza (“Corrientes Poti”), Mariano Mores and Nestor Fabian (“Frente A1 
Mar”) and Los Arrieros (“En Una Zamba”). The label has inked tango or- 
i chestra director Hector Varela, who has already cut his first single: “Portenito 
Ventanero.” The new record by Chicote Lopez, “El Monito,” has interesting 
advanced sales, after the chart riding success of “El Patitot.” 

* Julio Korn Publishers busy with the Beatles’ product. The pubbery owns the 
rights to “Love Me Do” and “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” and is negotiating 
other songs by the Liverpool group. Spanish lyrics for all these are being pre- 
pared and several local versions are expected. 

Microfon continues promoting the new promotional album by Los Cinco Del 
Ritmo, titled “El Merequetengue,” and containing several new tropical tunes. 
Mario Kaminsky, the label’s topper, feels that this LP will reach very inter- 
esting sales not only in Argentina, but also other countries where tropical 
k music has commercial value.

CANADA 




Once again we introduce our weekly column on the winning song of the 
San Remo and Eurovision contests: “Non Ho L’Eta’ Per Amarti.” Two weeks 
ago, we wrote that the song does not have the power, in our personal 
opinion, to become an international hit. For this reason, Italian representa- 
tive of Cash Box received a letter from one of the best known lyric writers 
of America, Buddy Kaye, in which he takes a kind but strong defense of 
this tune, (which he defines as “fabulous”), affirming that in his opinion 
the song will not only become an international hit, but an “evergreen.” We 
must apologize to Kaye, and to our readers because we have perhaps gone 
astray from our task, since we are chroniclers more than critics, and while 
it is too early, of course, to say what is the truth, let’s also say that we 
too will be really happy to see “Non Ho L’eta’ Per Amarti” to become a 
real big success all over the world. 

But now, on the way, we must indicate the reasons for our opinion: it’s 
really rare to find so fortunate a marriage like that admired on the San 
Remo stage and on the European TV screens between the flowing melody of 
“Non Ho L’Eta’ Per Amarti” and the young pretty talent of Gigliola Cinquetti, 
so that the success is strictly connected to both values. We were present to 
the San Remo night and we can’t imagine the song without Gigliola, and 
we are sure that the success of the number is strictly connected with the 
personality of its original performer. On the song itself, apologizing once 
again with Kaye, we just confirm our opinion, with the great wish to be 
. . . mistaken! In the meantime, we wish to announce that “Non Ho L’Eta’ 
Per Amarti” has been recorded in the States by Vera Lynn and Roger 
Williams. American title is “This Is My Prayer” with a lyric written by 
Buddy Kaye himself. 

And now two words on Gigliola Cinquetti: The songstress is now in Paris 
where she is taking part on a TV show, after which she will leave for London, 
where she will appear on the TV screens performing on the show “Thank 
Your Lucky Star.” The young songstress is accompanied by the CGD Inter- 
national’s manager, Joe Giannini. 

Lucio Salvini, head of the publicity and press office of Dischi CBS, has 
informed us that the well known pianist Casadesus and violinist Francescatti, 
are taking part in a concert tour in Italy. They are visiting Torino, Milano, 
Firenze, Roma, and Cagliari. Their arrival is connected with a strong pro- 
motional campaign on their recordings, including music of Mozart, Beethoven, 
Bach, etc. Two new albums of the two great artists have been released: first, 
performed by Casadesus includes compositions of Mozart and Bach, while 
second one, is the n. 3 Concert in G Major by Mozart, as performed by 
Francescatti. 

A short visit will be paid to Dischi CBS by the CBS European Operation 
Coordinator, Stanley West. He will discuss of same promotional matters with 
Giudo Rignano, general manager, and with Lucio Salvini. 

Catherine Spaak, the top songstress of Dischi Ricordi, and successful film 
actress, is now in Los Angeles. It’s probable that the artist will soon take 
part in an American motion picture. Before leaving, she has recorded two 
new songs, which she will present upon her return, during the TV show 
“I Tarocchi.” 

On May 11, the first Italian million seller Bobby Solo will be awarded a 
gold record during a cocktail party announced for that date. Dischi Ricordi 
will take the occasion to present to the press the new album recorded by 
its top artist, along with the new Bobby Solo “summer” single, titled “Credi 
A Me.” On May 12 and 13, Solo will be in Paris, where he will be presented 
on French TV. His disks are released in France by Disques Festival. 

The new RCA Italiana label, ARC, hosts a new talent, Luigi Chiocca. 
The twenty year old singer has just recorded his first single, containing 
“Pensaci Due Volte” b/w “Attendiamo Di Essere Grandi.” New artist is a 
discovery of the well known singer Nico Fidenco and of the RCA producer 
Alberto Durante. 

“Non Ti Ricordi Piu” c/w “Tu Sei Sempre” are the two titles chosen for 
the second ARC disk of Roby Ferrante, who did his debut on the label 
with the San Remo hit (penned by him) “Ogni Volta.” “Non Ti Ricordi Piu” 
written by Armando Trovajoli, is the leit-motiv of the motion picture, “Alta 
Infedelta.” RCA Italiana is the publisher of both titles, and of the back- 
ground music of the film. 

A new album entirely devoted to the film music has been recorded by 
the orchestra of Frank Chacksfield, under the Decca label. Among the titles 
chosen, three are derived from Italian films, “Divorce Italian Style,” “Otto 
E Mezzo,” and “Mondo Cane.” All compositions are owned by Campi. 

From Fonit-Cetra, we’ve received more news concerning the Campi pro- 
duction: Milva, top artist of the label, has just recorded the English version 
of the tune “Voglio Bene A1 Mondo” leit-motiv of the film “Mondo Cane 
No. 2.” The Milva’s single has been already released in England, and it will 
be strongly promoted in that country. 

Cash Box had the pleasure to meet the American talent Bobby Vee during 
his recent stay in Milan. Bobby was accompanied by his pretty wife, Carol, 
and by Mike Sloman, assistant manager of international Dept, of Liberty 
Records. 

Vee was a success performing at the pop TV Show “The Dreams Fair.” 
He also recorded a new single sung in Italian. This disk will be strongly 
promoted by EMI Italiana during the summer season. An enthusiastic wel- 
come was given to Bobby by ten thousand young people at a meeting organized 
by the light music paper, Ciao Amici, in Milan.

Roy Smith at Compo informs that the good Pierre Lalonde hit, “Louise,” has 
been released in the U.S. on Decca. The tremendous Canadian reaction to the 
debut English side by the young star was responsible for the American interest.

Bobby Curtola, currently hitting big on all charts with “You’re Not A 
Goody” b/w “Far Away Heart” on Tartan found himself in the midst of a wild 
teenage rampage in a suburban Toronto shopping centre recently. At the cen- 
tre to appear on a teen fashion show, the young singer was soon mobbed by 
thousands of enthusiastic fans. Finally, after two squads of security guards 
were only able to check the teens onslaught for a few moments, the young star 
was forced to beat a hasty retreat through the ladies dressing rooms of a 
nearby department store. Who says there isn’t a star system in Canada? 


That good Twentieth Century Fox release by Montrealer,, Andy Kim is begin- i 

ning to happen in a big way. The side is showing up on several playsheets, ” | 

with Andy’s hometown outlet, CKGM, leading the way. Young Mr. Kim has 

been very busy touring all of North America on behalf of his record, “Give r 

Me Your Love.” He recently returned to Canada after an extensive American 
swing to appear on the John Pozer TV’er in Ottawa. Bill Smithers, promo man 
at Quality in Montreal, indicates that the song is rapidly establishing itself 
throughout most of eastern Canada. 


Canadian deejays have received the new side by the Joy Strings with open 
arms. The Capitol single has become an instant pick and chart item wherever 
it has been played. This is the kind or record product from Great Britain that 
we can use more of. “It’s An Open Secret,” is a happy hand clapper that wins 
favor with record fans of all ages. Paul White figures the side for tremendous 
sales, due to the fact that it suits all broadcast formats to a “T.” 

Congratulations are definitely in order for Frank Henry who has just re- 
cently assumed the role of sales promotion representative for Capitol’s Quebec 
Territory. The newly-created post will have Frank right up to his ears in the 
promotion of the countless Capitol hits. Frank is a personable young fellow, 
who in his fiye years plus at Capitol has won many friends throughout the 
trade. Dick Riendeau indicates that the Quebec Branch will soon be busy with 
some outstanding new French language product. High on the list will be a new 
Pathe single by Les Cailloux, “Valparaiso.” This material is expected to mark 
the beginning of a strong folk oriented hootenanny market in French speaking 
Canada. The label has just signed an outstanding French language singer, 
Jean Guy Desroches.

Music biz veteran, Ralph Harding, has debuted his new label in the singles 
field. The first single release under Ralph’s Cal banner features the Rhythm 
Rockers and the Girl Friends. Both groups hold feature spots on the weekly 
cross Canada TV seg., “Music Hop.” The side that seems to be the chart item , 
is “The Cave.” The first solo outing by the female group, the Girl Friends, is 
set for release in early May, says Ralph. 

New all-night personality on Montreal’s CKGM is Gordon Logan. His pick hit 
of the week (4/4) “The French Song” by Lucille Starr. The side is a monster 
according to Quality’s Clyde McGregor. Demand for the side was so tremen- 
dous, well in advance of its Canadian release, that a hit single is assured. It’s 
on Barry in this country, and gives every indication of developing into a 
“Dominique,” particularly in the eastern part of the Country. On the subject 
of “Dominique,” the Singing Nun is represented on a new Quality LP release , 
spotlighting two very hot albums. “Her Joy, Her Songs” is the second LP by 
Soeur Sourire and Stan Dorling at Quality’s National H.Q. in Toronto looks for 
it to duplicate the sales action enjoyed by the initial set. Another package, , 

long awaited by the Country’s deejays, is the great set by the Serendipity 
Singers. The album will be just as big a smash as their current single, “Don’t -i 

Let The Rain Come Down” (Crooked Little Man). 


Expect the new single by Bobby Goldsboro to take over chart and sales-wise r 
where “Funny Little Clown” is leaving off. “Whenever He Holds You,” has that 
sweet sound of success. 


Ted Daigle’s latest LP has just been released by London. The CKOY-Ottawa 
deejay and his band do some very listenable items in the new set including his 
recent single outings, “Tennessee” and “When Today Is A Long Time Ago.” 

Tradesters with business in the CKOY-Ottawa Library from now on will 
be welcomed by two charming young ladies, Norma Broome and latest addition 
to the record racks, Joanne Vaughn. Joanne comes to CKOY from a library 
post at CJCH in Halifax.

Preferential bookings have now opened for concerts by the Beatles during 
their Australian and New Zealand tour in June. Playing dates are as follows: 
Adelaide (Centennial Hall) 12 and 13 June; Melbourne (Festival Hall) 15, 16 

• and 17 June; Sydney (Stadium) 18, 19 and 20 June; New Zealand 21 to 26 
June; Brisbane (Festival Hall) 29 and 30 June. Dick Lean, who, along with 
Ken Brodziak is bringing the Beatles to Australia, advised Cash Box of these 
dates. It is expected that all seats will be sold within twenty-four hours of 
the opening of bookings. Elaborate arrangements have been made to ensure 
some sort of privacy for the group during their rest periods in Australia but 
unless these arrangements can be kept absolutely secret, there won’t be much 
rest for the boys. 

Lean released to Cash Box the names of the back-up acts to the Beatles on 

• their Australia and New Zealand tour — they include Sounds Incorporated 
from England and local stars Johnny Chester, Johnny Devlin and the Phan- 

' toms. There is a possibility that other acts may be added to the bill. 

Johnny Chester is a young local recording artist who has enjoyed great 
success; his latest hit is “Teeny” which has put him well into the national 
spotlight. Johnny has had lots of television and concert experience and has 
appeared on shows with many big name American artists. Johnny Devlin 
came to Australia from New Zealand several years ago in the early days of 
rock and has established himself as a national favorite as a result of his 
•» many appearances and hit records. Johnny is also a successful composer with 
many local hit songs to his credit. Instrumental group the Phantoms (some 
■r members migrated to Australia from England) have been chosen to back 
singers on the show and will also have their own spot. The Phantoms are 
currently recording an album which will be nationally released next month; 
a new single of the group is expected to be issued at the same time. 

England’s Joan Regan is set for a season of hotel, club and television work 
in Australia. Joan will appear on shows with the Kirby Stone Four who have 
been held over for a further few weeks by popular demand. 

► _ Harry Miller, of Pan Pacific Promotions Ptyl. Ltd., advises that outstand- 
ing American funny man Allan Sherman has been booked for an Australian 

> season in May. Sherman is scheduled to appear in Melbourne on 1 and 2 May 
followed by additional concerts in Australia and New Zealand; he then goes 
into Chequers nightclub in Sydney for a two weeks season. 

April 30th has been set aside as the record release date throughout Aus- 
tralia for the seasonal new hit by the Beatles entitled “Can’t Buy Me Love.” 
The broadcast and public performance restriction will be lifted one week be- 
fore. Leeds Music control the copyright of the song for Australia and the 
r record will be released here by EMI on the Parlophone label. 

Due to a mail sorters strike in the postal department at Sydney (which 
has now been settled) many of our dealer reports on best-sellers have not 
reached us in time for this issue. Rather than run a list of best selling singles 
that isn’t absolutely authentic, we have no new list on this occasion but to 
keep readers in touch, we are reprinting the chart from last week’s issue. 
The strike caused great inconvenience to the entire country, especially in re- 
lation to overseas mail. 

On Tuesday, April 28, it will be the pleasure of the trade in this country to 
welcome Mr. and Mrs. Norman Orleck to Australia for a brief visit. Orleck 
of course, is vice-president of Cash Box and is on a tour of Pacific countries. 
, Due to time limitations, Orleck will only be able to visit Syndey and Mel- 
bourne. Orleck will meet people in the trade here and will examine all aspects 

• of the industry during his stay. 

W & G Records has received advice from the United States that Johnny 
Chester’s hit “Teeny” is to be released there by Melbourne Records. “Teeny” 
is the biggest hit. Chester has ever had and it became his first big national 
success. “Teeny” is an original German song composed by Christian Bruhn, 
the English lyric was written by Johnny Chester. 

Local recording star Digger Revell has new single out on RCA; the titles 
, are “Just Call On Me” and “Mr. Moon, Mr. Cupid and I.” This is Digger’s 
follow-up to his previous click “My Little Rocker’s Turned Surfie.” 

The hottest record in the world, “Can’t Buy Me Love” by the Beatles, 
has not yet been released in this country and radio stations which have 
imported copies have no advantage because a broadcasting and public per- 
formance restriction has been slapped on the song. “Can’t Buy Me Love” could 
well become the most played of all the records by the Beatles when the 
restriction is finally lifted. There is no indication of release date as of press 
time for this issue but it seems certain that countless thousands of pressings 
, will be placed in distributors hands before the actual release date is announced. 

Some indication of the popularity in Australia of Roy Orbison can be seen 
in the fact that his single of “Borne On The Wind” is doing very well here 
and yet it hasn’t made the “big time” in the United States.

NEW BLOOD 


The lifeline of this business, or any business for that 
matter, is the influx of new blood. There is much to be 
said for the axiom: “What you don’t know won’t harm 
you.” We have seen evidence that this is good advice 
and the end result has been the entrance into the busi- 
ness of newcomers who have succeeded, in a short time, 
against the odds as laid down by the veteran coin ma- 
chine operator of today. 

An arcade man up in Boston walked out of his an- 
cient emporium as he closed down the year 1963 and 
one of his reasons for leaving the business was because 
of a rent hike, probably one of a long line of rent hikes 
over the years. The operator, who has never been noted 
as a ‘buyer’ in distributor circles, sold his archaic ma- 
chines, most of which paid for themselves over and over 
again, and told the renting agent who owns the building 
what he could do with his building. The renting agent 
did not listen to our operator friend, who’s advice was 
almost totally without wisdom, but instead took a second 
look at the coin machine business, this time from the 
viewpoint of the operator. He had a choice of renting 
to another coinman or turning to other avenues of profit. 

After brief study of the situation, the renting agent 
sought out the local distributor in search of another 
operator-leasee and after listening to the distributor’s 
opinion as to how the arcade should have been operated, 
and what could be expected in the way of revenue should 
a new operator follow the logical road to profits via new 
equipment and a pleasant renovated atmosphere, he de- 
cided to enter into the business himself. “I became a 
pinball machine operator, of all things,” said the agent 
in a conversation with us last week. P.S. The weekly 
volume since the first week in January has been greater 
than the distributor’s optimistic estimate, and the rent- 
ing agent is now on his way to adding vending equip- 
ment. He does not want to hear any more stories about 
the pitfalls of this business. “I wonder how much money 
my old operator lost in this arcade over the years,” was 
his final observation of a veteran coin machine operator 
who really did not lose anything except an even greater 
return on his money. 

The second eye-opener we had last week happened in 
the same town when we were introduced to a 25-year- 
old vending operator who counts no less than six full- 
line installations among his locations. In spite of com- 
petition from a large independent who grosses more 
than $40 million, this young man has built, in three 
years time, a vending machine route to be proud of. He 
does not want to hear about the national operating com- 
panies nor could he care less for the publicly owned 
operating firms. “I outbid them three times out of four 
on industrial plant feeding bids,” says the vendor who 
built his own compact commissary to control cost and 
quality in order to get the feeding contracts he has 
landed. 

We have looked hard for an indication as to where 
the new blood is coming from in our industry. With sev- 
eral exceptions, it appears as though there is no clear 
source of supply nor is there any effort made to stimu- 
late interest among what could be called the new blood 
— the lifeline of tomorrow for the factories and the dis- 
tributors. This is where the necessary initiative must 
come from in order to get the most from tomorrow’s 
equipment. The two examples used here are far from 
typical, unfortunately, and so the industry must seek out 
the newcomer simply because he will view the industry’s 
potential from the threshold of a new business career 
instead of glancing back at it and longing for those 
‘good old days’ which will never come hack. This in- 
dustry has too much going for it inside those machines 
for anyone to complain about conditions.

The Man They Called 'Shugy' 



Barnet Sugerman, age 64, entered 
the coin machine industry in 1938 do- 
ing business from a small store on 
Hunterdon Street in Newark, New 
Jersey. When Shugy passed away on 
Saturday, April 11, 1964 — twenty-six 
years later — his coin machine and 
vending interests extended to every 
segment of the industry, but everyone 
still called him Shugy. He was that 
kind of a guy. 

Shugy was Chairman of the Board 
of Runyon Sales Company which 
lists among its distributing fran- 
chises the Rowe AC phonograph and 
vending lines, a half dozen amusement 
machine lines, the international fran- 
chise for at least two factories, a 
worldwide export business — and allied 
or subsidiary firms operating large 
music and amusement machine routes, 
a statewide cigarette machine route, 
more than one dozen full-line vending 
installations in New Jersey’s indus- 
trial plants, and a vast background 
music business which covered the 
state. 

THE DOOR WAS ALWAYS OPEN 

The main plant is in the two-year 
old Springfield headquarters where a 
36,000 square foot building houses the 
nerve centers feeding each of the 
Sugerman companies. A branch sales 
office in New York City and one in 
East Hartford rounds out Runyon’s 
distributing company. And there 
wasn’t a day that passed when an em- 
ployee, an operator, a trade press re- 
porter, or a legitimate request for a 
favor, didn’t find the door to his office 
as an open invitation to walk in and 
sit down. This was the man called 
Shugy, head of a dynamic and sprawl- 
ing enterprise, who could look through 
the complexities of modern day busi- 
ness dealings and spot the touch of 
humor that was always there. A 
serious man when the situation called 
for it, but nonetheless a gem when the 
seriousness of this same situation 
called for an earthy and humorous 
comment on the passing parade. 
Shugy could always provide the witty 
observation. 

A NATIVE INTELLIGENCE 

Is there a need to go into history 
of the man who was probably one of 
the best known men in the business? 
To outline his accomplishments would 


be to sketch the man himself. Many 
said he had a native intelligence that 
surpassed the formal education his 
sons and their sons after them would 
receive. From the beginning, Shugy’s 
business was taverns, and beer, and 
whisky, and entertainment, and music, 
and amusement, and people — but 
mostly people. People who were not of 
the smai't set although in time he got 
to know them, too. Or was it the other 
way around ? Shugy knew what it took 
to provide the working man with en- 
tertainment and he provided this 
entertainment from machines. He 
stripped all sales presentations which 
praised the performance of a machine, 
and with a question or two and mo- 
ment of thought, saw through the 
tinsel and answered the question: will 


people pay to play it. He was right 
far more often than he was wrong. 
The proof lies in his assets. 

Last year Shugy was part of a 
group who bought Bally Manufactur- 
ing Company. The firm was up for 
sale by the former owners and Sugar- 
man headed the group who could see 
an eventual profitable acquisition. By 
the time he died, Bally was already 
on its way fulfilling a program that 
Shugy had set down for it. His most 
recent acquisition — licensing rights to 
manufacture and distribute the Scopi- 
tone audio-visual amusement machine. 
The decision was not one which came 
overnight. As always, Shugy seldom 
spoke specifically about his plans for 
the future. But it was evident that 
from the start, his ideas for the de- 


velopment of the new form of coin- 
operated entertainment were founded 
on that same native intelligence which 
brought about his other successes. 

The fact that he entered into new 
business dealings of this size as re- 
cently as several months ago was evi- 
dence that Shugy was not one to sit 
idle enjoying the comforts of a hard- 
earned retirement. Shugy rested while 
surrounded with people from his busi- 
ness — employees, associates, competi- 
tors and customers. He was part of 
every social scene from the Catskills 
to the out-of-town conventions and 
Molly, his beloved wife, was always at 
his side. If you were new to the busi- 
ness, you could find a place at Shugy’s 
table. He was a fixture — and a wel- 
come one — on the coin machine scene, 
whether it be a social get-together or 
a business meet. For Shugy was a 
kind of stabilizing factor. His mild- 
mannered comment influenced deci- 
sions — his refusal to take part in a 
business deal oftentimes left the man 
behind the idea with a tough row to 
hoe. 

A FAMILY MAN 

Shugy was surrounded by his fam- 
ily to the day he died. His daughter 
Lorraine, 30, and her husband Bob 
Cohn who headed the Runyon Parts 
Department gave Shugy and Molly 
their first grandchild. Nathan joined 
the organization just two years ago 
and at 28 is Comptroller of the firm. 
Myron 26, Shugy’s second son, heads 
Runyon International, the export divi- 
sion of Runyon. 

To the members of the industry the 
sad news came as a surprising shock, 
for many had sat with him only days 
before at a UJA-Coin Division Com- 
mittee meeting, the same Committee 
who honored the well-liked coinman 
as Guest Of Honor at a Victory Din- 
ner several years back. 

Shugy’s closest associate, Abe 
Green, President of the Runyon or- 
ganization, who was with him even in 
1938 on Hunterdon Street, will now 
head this vast company. But the vic- 
tories ahead for this progressive coin 
machine and vending firm will carry 
the stamp of Sugerman for many 
years to come. And through the years 
will be remembered one of the most 
successful men who walked among us 
— the man they called Shugy. 


Rowe AC To Represent 
Industry At Phila. Trade Fair 


United Ships New 
Puck Shuffle, ‘Pacer’ 


■ Dave Rosen To Display In 
Cooperation With Canteen 

PHILADELPHIA — Vending ma- 
chines will be among the exhibits to 
be seen at the first Greater Philadel- 
phia Industrial Trade Fair which 
will be staged at Convention Hall 
during the week of May 9th, spon- 
sored by the Philadelphia Bulletin. 
The one-of-a-kind trade show will 
find an impressive exhibit of vending 
machines presented by David Rosen, 
Inc., Rowe distributors, in coopera- 
tion with the Automatic Canteen Co. 
of America. 

The Trade Fair is designed to pro- 
vide an opportunity for manufactur- 
ing, trade and industry to demon- 
strate the advantages of doing busi- 
ness with firms in Greater Philadel- 
phia. Only one firm in every field of 
business and industry activity will be 
exhibited in order to show the 
widest possible range of such activi- 
ties. To attract widest public attend- 
ance, prominent stage and TV per- 
sonalities, including Frank Fontaine, 
Vaughn Monroe and Cab Calloway, 
have been booked for daily perform- 
ances during the show week. 

In addition to the general public. 


attendance is being promoted by the 
newspaper to attract a national audi- 
ence of purchasing agents, govern- 
ment officials and industrialists. 

The Rosen-Rowe exhibit is expect- 
ed to demonstrate to business and in- 
dustry to large variety of vending 
machines and how such machines can 
serve employee needs to best advan- 
tage. Visitors to the fair will also 
have an opportunity to patronize the 
machines on display. 

Tabb To Attend 
Pres. Johnson Meet 

MIAMI — Sol Tabb, president of Cas- 
tlewood International Corporation’s 
Mar-Tab Vending division, has been 
invited to attend a meeting of Presi- 
dent Johnson’s Committee on Em- 
ployment of the Handicapped in 
Washington, April 30-May 1. 

Tabb previously received the Mi- 
ami-Dade County Chamber of Com- 
merce’s Committee on Total Employ- 
ment award “for his outstanding ef- 
forts in furthering employment op- 
portunities for the mature worker.” 


CHICAGO— C. B. (Bill) DeSelm, ex- 
ecutive vice president, and director of 
sales for United Manufacturing Com- 
pany, announced last week that 
United is setting the pace for this 
Spring season in the coin-operated 
amusement games business, with the 
all-new “Pacer” puck-type shuffle al- 
ley bowler, which features a stunning, 
streamlined backbox that extends all 
the way to the floor. The entire cabi- 
net, DeSelm explained, offers the ad- 
ditional convenience of easy installa- 
tion and accessibility (at the rear, es- 
pecially) since it is easy to move it in 
any direction with scarcely any effort. 

There are numerous other United 
innovations to offer considerbly more 
convenience, and many money making 
possibilities for operators, as well as 
location owners. For example, “Pacer” 
has instantaneously fast 4-reel scor- 
ing totalizers, the exciting “Read- 
Out” feature on the backglass, a prac- 
tically soundproof playfield, and easy- 
on-the-eyes fluorescent lighting. There 
is, according to DeSelm, much stress 
on very rapid play for greater profits. 

“Pacer,” a six-player, has five scor- 
ing games, including: “Flash-Bonus,” 
“Bonus” scoring, “Dual - Flash,” 
“Flash,” and standard “Regulation” 
bowling. In the action-packed “Flash- 
Bonus” scoring game the strike and 
spare scores are indicated by rapidly 


flashing lights. Frames one through 
ten advance the bonus scores to 400 
for a strike, and 200 for a spare. 
After the tenth frame each player 
shoots an additional frame to collect 
the accumulated bonus score. Then, a 
strike scores the full bonus. A spare 
scores one-half bonus. And, of course, 
a ‘blow’ (or miss) negates the bonus 
score.

Gottlieb Ships New 
1-Plyr ‘World Fair’ 



Gottlieb WORLD FAIR 


I 


CHICAGO — The introduction of a 
new skill shooting flipper amusement 
game is always a somewhat festive 
occasion at D. Gottlieb & Company, 
and among the firm’s distributors in 
this country as well as throughout all 
of the foreign markets. This week, 
however, there is a greater degree of 
excitement centered around the intro- 
duction of Gottlieb’s new single 
player, “World Fair”, making its way 
to the world’s coin markets just in 
time for the widely acclaimed World’s 
Fair in New York City. The timing, 
according to Alvin Gottlieb, was per- 
fect! 

“What delights us more is that we 
know for certain we have a big win- 
ner in ‘World Fair’ single player, as 


was indicated by several week’s col- 
lection reports we have received here 
in the factory from machines placed 
previously on location in territories 
selected at random, which is our nor- 
mal procedure with most of our 
amusement games. 

In keeping with the World’s Fair 
theme the game cabinet is superbly 
styled for the utmost in attractive- 
ness. As an innovation new high gloss, 
sturdy metal “Jewel-Posts” were in- 
stalled to maintain exceptional board 
action (called ‘positive action’) on the 
playfield. Furthermore, plastic rings 
have been inserted directly under all 
of the pop bumpers to further pro- 
tect the playfield and avoid normal 
wear. The playfield also has the Gott- 
lieb “Hard-Cote” finish to extend the 
life of the playboard to an all time 
high. 

Gottlieb explained that there is a 
new innovation in a “Spin-Disc” 
feature at the very center of the 
attractive playfield, which ‘spots’ any 
one of 11 numbered ‘cars.’ 

Making the rollovers lights the 
numbered ferris wheel on the color- 
fully illuminated light box. The 
lighted red pop bumpers and “out” 
hole activates the “Spin-Disc” for 
higher scores. Also, lighting the ‘cars’ 
awards the player the (Special), and 
re-lights one rollover for additional 
special scoring on the light box. 
There is also a Gottlieb “Match Fea- 
ture” on the light box. 

As a reminder, Gottlieb’s “World 


Gordon Appointed 
Seeburg President 



JACK GORDON 

CHICAGO— The Seeburg Corporation 
announced last week the election of 
J. Cameron Gordon as president. 

Formerly executive vice president, 
Gordon succeeds Delbert W. Coleman 
as president. Coleman will continue 
as chairman and chief executive officer 
of Seeburg, manufacturer of coin 
phonographs, vending equipment, 
background music systems, electronic 
organs and hearing aids. 

Gordon joined Seeburg in 1948 as a 
district sales manager. He was elected 
vice president in 1959 and elevated to 
executive vice president and director 
of sales in 1962. Previously, he had 
been a sales executive with RCA. 

Fair” has the playboard “Auto- 
Clamp” mechanism for considerably 
greater ease in servicing the internal 
mechanism. The cabinet is adorned 
with sturdy stainless trim for greater 
beauty and durability. 


From Motorcycles To Belly Dancers 

3-D Multi-Sense Film Machine Introduced 


NEW YORK — A new film machine, 
designed to create for its user the 
illusion of being physically present 
in a different environment, has been 
introduced by Morton L. Heilig, in- 
ventor of the device and president of 
the manufacturing company, Senso- 
rama Inc. The machine is called the 
Sensorama Simulator and utilizes 
three-dimensional film and stereo- 
phonic sound. Blowers produce strong 
or gentle winds, exude certain selected 
aromas appropriate to the subject on 
the film, and physically vibrates the 
patron when such a tactile sensation 
is called for. 

Heilig’s Sensorama achieves the 
illusion of reality by an arrangement 
of lenses through which the customer 
looks directly at the film instead of a 
screen. The breezes, aromas and vi- 
brations are manufactured by the 
Fragrance Process Co. of New York, 
and are synchronized with the visual 
image on the film by electronic 
circuits. 

Heilig, a former NBC photog- 
rapher, developed the Sensorama 
Simulator with the help of John B. 
Miller, an investment banker and 
former vice president of the R. H. 
Miller store chain. Standing six feet 
high and weighing 700 pounds, the 
machine presents a combination of 
those features introduced by Ciner- 
ama, 3-D and Smell-O-Vision, accord- 
ing to the inventor. 

Miller and Heilig visualize two 
commercial markets for the Simu- 
lator — first, as a coin-operated amuse- 
ment machine, or, as a sales-promo- 
tion medium for large corporations. 
The proposed price for the film ma- 
chine is $6,000. Tentative plans also 
call for leasing arrangements. 

The original and only Simulator 
that exists at this time sits in Heilig’s 
apartment at No. 1 Washington 



SENSORAMA SIMULATOR 

Square Village, where he offers po- 
tential buyers two twelve-minute 
demonstration films, which are viewed 
on the device through two binocular 
peepholes. One film offers a break- 
neck, fast-paced, exhaust-fume filled 
motorcycle ride across the Brooklyn 
Bridge. The second puts the specta- 
tor virtually in the same room with 
an exotic, aromatic, belly dancer. 
Mike Mulqueen, of the M. & M. Vend- 


ing Co., Montgomery, N.Y., who was 
given a personal demonstration last 
week, said this last film was the 
closest thing to reality he had ever 
seen on a film system. 

The Sensorama Simulator is por- 
table and easy to install and operate 
in any location, Heilig stated. He said 
that such locations as hotel lobbies, 
bowling alleys, bars, restaurants and 
airline terminals would be ideal for 
the machine. The inventor says the 
device separates into four sections 
that can be transported easily in a 
truck, and can be reassembled in five 
minutes. It operates on normal wall 
current and requires no special 
wiring. The Simulator rewinds itself 
automatically and once it is installed, 
Heilig said, it will require no at- 
tendant. 

There was no definite announcement 
forthcoming on production dates or 
the manner in which the machine will 
be marketed.

Eyewitness Report Of The Alaskan Disaster: 


The Story Of A Juke Box And An Earthquake 



A Wurlitzer 2700 devastated by the 
Alaskan quake. 


SEATTLE — When the earthquake of 
last month shook Alaska, news agen- 
cies managed to do a comprehensive 
job reporting in detail the extent of 
damage caused by the unfortunate 
tragedy. Homes, autos, business places 
and typical everyday symbols of life 
were pictured, torn from natural 
foundations and stripped of the beau- 
ty they once possessed, as they ap- 
peared following the disaster. Ron 
Pepple, Northwest Sales Company, 
Wurlitzer distributor here and in 
Alaska, has added to this news cover- 
age by way of a report of the after- 
effects of an earthquake on still an- 
other symbol of life in these United 
States — the juke box. His poignant 
and descriptive story appears below, 
word for word as it was forwarded to 


Wurlitzer executives in the North 
Tonawanda plant. 

This may come as a surprise to 
you, and a disappointment to the En- 
gineering Department . . . hut we just 
gotta face it; neither our # 2700 nor 
our # 2800 are either earthquake proof 
or tidal wave proof. 

And you had better believe it. 

Last week, Frank Irick of Kodiak 
phoned, and I asked him how his new 
#2800 and the used #2700 trade-in 
which he had not returned to us yet, 
had survived the quake. He reported 
the quake had shaken the devil out of 
his Sportland and had messed things 
up pretty well, but it was not until 
the tidal waves swept thru his build- 
ing that he really knew what dam- 
age was. 

I understand the wave gushed thru 
the building and tore the entire inside 
loose, he later found his cash register 
in the shell of the store next door and 
some of his equipment more than a 
block away, and his big six foot iron 
safe fallen on its face. 

Apparently the two phonographs 
were swept from the building . . . 
well, not swept, probably rolled over 
and over in the water. They were out- 
side the building, both partly covered 
over by sand and beach gravel and 
debris. Probably we should spell that 
in capital letters . . . DEBRIS . . . 
because after they were dug up and 
hauled way out to the Navy runway 
and loaded on the plane and flown to 
Seatttle, they were both packed full 
of Debris. 

We mucked out sand, and gravel, 
and mud, and paper napkins, and 
soda straws, and bookmatches, and 
candy wrappers, and sloppy soggy 
stringy paper which was wound all 
thru the mechanism . . . and all the 
interior parts were dumped around in 
all this mess. 


You told me you would see what 
help you could extend with parts for 
Alaska quake and tidal wave dam- 
aged machines. Well, this is a good 
starter. These have been rolled end 
over end so many times and have so 
many dents and bruises . . . we want 
to strip them and steam clean them 
and then decide whether to try to re- 
pair them or forget them. We do owe 
it to our very good customer, Mr. 
Irick, who for the past number of 
years buys a brand new model as 
soon as they are out for his Sport- 
land . . . we just can’t kiss these off 
without at least trying to salvage 
them. Of course Sportland is wiped 
out and I don’t know whether Mr. 
Irick will be able to get back into 
business again or not . . . but we have 
to do what we can for him. 

The pictures just can’t show the 
condition of these things . . . but you 
can tell a little bit from the view of 
the back of the #2700 (picture) after 
we scooped a lot of the dirt out . . . 
and note that the top of the #2700 is 
caved in where it rolled over, and the 
entire dome section is a shambles. 

Notice the #2800 dome is all ripped 
to pieces too . . . but that the front 
casting is caved in where it was 
dashed on its face sometime as it went 
rolling along in its ride within the 
tidal wave. 

We don’t mind doing a little field 
testing for Engineering from time to 
time, but they are going to have to 
build these models a little more sub- 
stantial for use in our area. I thought 
it no more than fair to bring this to 
their attention . . . 

The Wurlitzer phonographs are 
currently undergoing the necessary 
reconditioning in order that they re- 
turn to serve their purpose as a sym- 
bol of life as we know it today — earth- 
quake or no earthquake. 


NYS Bills Await Rocky’s Okay 


ALBANY— The New York State leg- 
islators approved Governor Nelson 
Rockefeller’s liquor legislation last 
week following concessions by the 
Governor, with Rocky signing the new 
bills officially closing the special ses- 
sion which was called for April 15. 
But he did not sign anything else be- 
fore leaving for a Presidential pri- 
mary campaign in Oregon and this 
includes the two Laverne-Lounsberry 
coin machine industry hills (CB April 
11) which will remove the $100 in- 
stallation fee and will legalize free 
play pingames with amusement ma- 
chine operators becoming licensed 
under a State ordinance. Unauthor- 
ized opinion from the State’s industry 
leaders were that the bills would be 
signed upon Rockefeller’s return next 
week. 

Mrs. Millie McCarthy, Hurleyville 
operator and President of the New 
York State Coin Machine Association, 


advised that the Governor has until 
April 25 to sign the bills. 

Unlike Federal hills which become 
law automatically as long as they 
are not vetoed by the President, State 
bills must be signed by the Governor 
to become law.

acted May 1st.

VIENNA — A. & D. Christoff, general 
distributors of Seeburg equipment in 
Austria, presented Seeburg’s full line 
of music machines and cigarette, 
drink and merchandise venders at the 
Vienna Spring Fair, held March 15th 
through the 22nd. 

The merchandise exposition, which 
was heavily attended, has been one 
of the many avenues that Anissim 
Christoff, president of the firm, has 
used to publicize his Seeburg equip- 
ment. Christoff also promoted his 
music and vending line in an article, 


written by Herbert Sykora, technical 
manager of the firm, which appeared 
in the March issue of Hotel u. Gast- 
statten Revue, the trade magazine of 
the Austrian hotel and bar associa- 
tion. The article principally extolled 
the virtues of Seeburg’s cigarette 
vender, while mentioning the merits 
of the music machine. 

Anissim Christoff is also vice presi- 
dent of the Austrian Automatic Asso- 
ciation, the principal organization of 
Austrian vending operators. 




We Will Grow With Chicago — Coleman 


Groundbreaking Day At Seeburg 


It’s Good Business 
To Do Business 


CHICAGO — Thursday, April 16, was 
the target day for what Delbert W. 
Coleman, board chairman of the See- 
burg Corporation, designated as a 
“momentous occasion.” This was the 
day Seeburg Corporation actually 
commenced construction of the firm’s 
new office and factory building on a 
vast site less than a block away from 
the main plant, at Dayton and Weed 
Streets, in this city. 

To initiate the construction project 
a Ground Breaking ceremony was 
held at the new site with numerous 
prominent dignitaries present, includ- 
ing the Honorable Richard J. Daley, 
Mayor of Chicago; and Most Rev- 
erend Bernard J. Sheil, Auxiliary 
Archbishop of the Chicago Roman 
Catholic Archdiocese, who delivered 
the invocation. 

Ralph M. Isacksen, assistant vice 
president, director of Industrial Re- 
lations for Seeburg, was master of 
ceremonies. He brought Jack Cam- 
eron Gordon, who just the other day 
was elected to the presidency of the 
Seeburg Corporation, to the micro- 
phones. He addressed the huge as- 
semblage of Seeburg employees, de- 
tailing the international firm’s 62 
years of growth and progress, es- 
pecially under the direction of Delbert 
Coleman. 

Gordon introduced Mayor Richard 


J. Daley, who expressed his, and the 
City Council’s delight over Seeburg’s 
eventful decision to remain in the city 
proper, rather than moving to a dis- 
tant suburban community. 

He said: “This fine gesture on the 
part of Mr. Coleman and the Board 
of Directors has already had a singu- 
larly positive effect in Chicago. Now, 
other companies are following suit 
and declaring themselves to remain 
in the city — and to build with 
Chicago.” 

Del Coleman stressed the fact that, 
without the personal aid of Mayor 


Fats' 'Fire' A 33 Single 

CHICAGO — Fats Domino and his 
ABC-Paramount recording of ‘Fats 
on Fire’ hits the ‘Artist Of The Week’ 
spot with this weeks releases of 33 
singles by the Seeburg Corporation. 
Three little LP’s were also released. 

George Maharis and his Epic disk 
of ‘Make Love To Me’ accompanies 
Vikki Carr and her ‘Color Mr Me 
Great’ on Liberty in the ‘Pop Vocal’ 
slot. Two Decca releases find their 
way into this week’s offerings with 
Jan Garber and ‘Melodies and Memo- 
ries’ for ‘Pop Instrumental,’ and 
Goldie Hill and ‘Country Hit Parade’ 
for ‘Country and Western’ Material. 


Daley, Alderman Goldberg, and other 
prominent citizens, this ambitious 
building project “would merely be a 
figment of the imagination.” 

He stated that this is only a be- 
ginning “which will usher in numer- 
ous other positive Seeburg projects.” 

Coleman added that “without the 
dedicated, fine, friendly cooperation 
between management, labor and gov- 
ernment officials none of this could 
be possible. And, we are happy to be 
a party to Chicago’s ‘I Will’ spirit of 
enterprise. We certainly will grow 
with Chicago!” 

Two significant closing incidents 
marked the serene tempo of the feel- 
ing that permeated throughout. 
Firstly, Emil Vistine, a veteran em- 
ployee of 51 years, presented the gold 
shovel to Coleman and Mayor Daley 
for the Ground Breaking ceremony. 
Finally, Marie Dus, who represented 
all of the employees in thhe Chicago 
plant, presented Del Coleman with a 
bouquet of red roses in behalf of all 
his “fellow workers.” 

Then all of the Seeburg executives, 
dignitaries, and the press were 
whisked by motor bus to the Drake 
Hotel’s Venetian Room for cocktails 
and lunch. It ’twas indeed a big day 
in Chicago.

So. Carolina Ops Get Decals 


COLUMBIA, S. C. — A meeting of the 
South Carolina Coin Operators Asso- 
ication, Inc., was scheduled to be held 
here Sunday, April 19th, at the Hotel 
Jefferson, A. W. Bradford, association 
president announced. 

Harry Bryan, executive director of 
the S. C. Mental Health Association, 
was to deliver the key address. An 
executive of the S. C. National Bank 
was originally scheduled to be guest 
speaker, according to a February 20th 
letter which Bradford sent to associa- 
tion members, but a conflict with a 
Bankers Association meeting forced a 
change of plans and Bryan stepped 
in. 

A discussion of publicity and mem- 
bership recruitment was on the 
agenda. Association decals, for iden- 
tification use on vehicles and ma- 
chines, were to be passed out to the 
membership during the meeting.

Houston Happenings 


The Wurlitzer sales headquarters headed by Bill Williams was recently 
re-located at 1818 Leeland Ave. Large and completely modern building, 
located on Dennis St. and owned by Williams Distributing Co. has been 
given over to State of Texas distribution of Emerson complete line of appli- 
ances. . . . Kitty Brach, known generally as “Kitty” in local wholesale record 
circles and as “Queen” of Houston W. T. Grant record department where 
she has 16 years of continuous service, has quite a sizable number of credits 
worth mentioning. She undoubtedly has retailed more records for cash than 
any other person in this area. She is a musician in her own right with a 
background of knowledge about music as written or composed and artists 
who produced same. Her main hobby is holding onto autographed records, 
letters from writers, composers and artists. The whole collection would fill 
two wheelbarrows. Her list of autographers, alphabetically cataloged, is 
too lengthy to list here. . . . Operator K. T. Park said he was continuing a 
program of gradual expansion started when he re-activated his Bluebonnett 
Music & Cigarette Service, Inc. back in November, 1961. 

Operator John Williams, ABC Music, thinks maybe he is allergic to fires. 
Anyhow two of his top locations have burned down lately, cremating phonos 
and other equipment on the spot. 

Pat Quinn, United Records, has made daily paper stories past years with 
his lawn decorations and parties for kids. Last Christmas vandals drove 
an automobile back and forth across lawn, destroyed decorations and cost 
him considerable money. Past Easter he repeated the project with Easter 
theme. Again vandals repeated their visit, going through identical operations, 
costing Pat less cash this time but plenty of hard work. Quinn said words 
to effect that he would feel partly compensated if only he could figure out a 
motive for such ornery, uncalled for actions. 

Sam E. Ayo, head sales representative for Houston office of Bill Williams 
Distributing Co., in hospital for routine physical and health check up. 

Sweet smell of success around Amusement Distributors, Inc. as the gang

Ops Pack Chi Hotel For Day Long Meetings 


CHICAGO — The necessity of a closer 
association between operators of vend- 
ing machines and community leaders 
as a step toward a better understand- 
ing between the industry as a whole 
and local and regional legislators, was 
stressed in a slide-film presentation 
which was shown to the large assem- 
blage of NAM A members who at- 
tended the Midwest Regional Vending 
Conference at the LaSalle Hotel, 
April 11th. 

The slide-film, titled “Achilles Had 
His Heel,” was presented during the 
afternoon session of the convention by 
NAM A Legislative Counsel John In- 
salata, and by Richard Funk. The 
necessity of vending operators to at- 
tain some position in their respective 
civic and community organizations 
was the chief lesson of the presenta- 
tion. Through this, the film advised, 
a closer association and mutual un- 
derstanding between the industry and 
legislators can be achieved. 

The convention began with registra- 
tion at 8:00 A.M. on the mezzanine 


NEW YORK — An ultra-modern con- 
cession program, utilizing both auto- 
matic and manual vending, has been 
established at Yankee Stadium by the 
Automatic Canteen Company of 
America. As the new concessionaire, 
Automatic Canteen replaces Harry 
Stevens Concessions in providing N.Y. 
Yankee baseball fans with foods and 
beverages, and was scheduled to begin 
operations with the opening of the 
baseball season here Tuesday, April 
4th. 

A. G. Hardy, Canteen Executive 
Vice President, said his company “will 
utilize its combined experience in 
manual and automatic vending, sup- 
ported by modern automatic food 
preparation and distribution equip- 
ment, to provide the ultimate in a 
sanitary, efficient, quality concession 
operation.” 


Food Products Up 
Vending Sales 

BOSTON — Food products have ac- 
counted for 75 per cent of the rise 
in vending machine sales in 1963, ac- 
cording to William C. McConnell, Jr., 
vice president of the Servomation 
Corporation. In an address to a 
Boston security analysts meeting, Mc- 
Connell stated that vending machine 
sales rose $265 million over those of 
1962 and that an increased volume 
in food products made up $200 of the 
increase. 

Joseph E. McDowell, president of 
the Servomation Corporation, stated 
that his company’s sales for the fiscal 
year ending on June 30th would be 
above $100 million, as compared with 
$80 million in fiscal 1962. 


floor, and the activities were started 
at 10:30 A.M. Dave Hartley, NAMA’s 
public health counsel, received con- 
siderable applause and positive reac- 
tion with his discourse on “What 
Happens When the Health Depart- 
ment Looks at Vending.” He has been 
conducting an intensive nationwide 
sanitation drive in the vending indus- 
try for many years. 

This was followed by a experimen- 
tal-type session delivered by J. R. 
“Jim” Phillips, communication Direc- 
tor of Technifax Corporation, on “One 
Good Reason Why Things Often Don’t 
Happen the Way You Plan Them.” It 
was an audio-visual discussion and 
presentation on communications prob- 
lems in marketing, etc. 

Carl Millman, enterprising, young 
president of the National Automatic 
Merchandising Association, delivered 
the keynote address at the luncheon, 
with an inspiring speech detailing the 
industry’s advancement and fantastic 
growth over the past decade. With 
Millman on the podium were sev- 


Twenty-seven stands have been 
completely replaced by all new elec- 
trical and automatic equipment. Ac- 
cording to Hardy, the refurbished 
service areas feature new automatic 
product dispensers, new automatic ice 
and cold drink filling machines, four- 
selection drink dispensers, new auto- 
matic coffee and hot drink urns for 
volume production, and automatic 
check-out packaging and counting 
equipment for faster service to ven- 
dors. 

Vending machines in banks of three 
will be set up in fifteen strategically 
located places throughout the Stadium 
for the sale of candy, gum and to- 
bacco products. And for those glued 
to their seats during the crucial pitch 
there will be the hawker (for the long 
throw).

Nears For NY Ops 

NEW YORK — Time is drawing near 
for the Fifth Annual Statewide Con- 
vention Outing Meeting of the New 
York Automatic Vending Association,

Gordon would like to remind mem- 
bers and friends of the Association to 
make their reservations as quickly as 
possible. Extensive plans for the en- 
joyment of conventioneers have been 
made, Gordon stated, from sports to 
dancing to nightly entertainment, and 
he added, “this weekend will be the 
talk of the industry.” 


eral association executives, including 
Thomas Hungerford, Executive Direc- 
tor; Walter Reed, publicity director; 
and others. Among those in attend- 
ance were numerous executives in the 
manufacturing and distributing ends 
of the coin-operated automatic mer- 
chandising industry. 

Finally, Dr. Jack R. Wentworth, 
B.S., M.B.A., D.B.A., Associate Pro- 
fessor of Business Administration, In- 
diana University, and a business coun-

ize Greater Profits in Vending 
Through Testing and Sound Develop- 
ment.” 

There was a “Bull Session” recep- 
tion on the mezzanine floor just prior 
to adjournment of the meeting early 
Saturday evening. Practically every- 
one who attended the meetings was 
present at the cocktail party. This 
affair was hosted by manufacturers 
and distributors.

SBA Report Cites 
7 Qualifications 
For Vend Products 

NEW YORK — In a comprehensive 
report to the Small Business Admin- 
istration titled ’Automatic Merchan- 
dising’, Thomas R. Wotruba, Assist- 
ant Professor of Marketing for San 
Diego State College, cited seven quali- 
fications which should be met by 
products to be dispensed through auto- 
matic vending machines. 

The qualifications that Professor 
Wotruba named are: 

1. They should be well-known stand- 
ardized products, presold through na- 
tional advertising and promotion. 

2. They should be well packaged 
and protected, but easily dispensed 
through the mechanical operation of 
the machine. 

3. They must be reasonably small 
in size so that the capacity of a ma- 
chine is not taken up with only a 
few products. 

4. They should be items of a ‘con- 
venience’ nature, usable within a 
short distance from the machine. 

5. They must be of such nature 
that storage will not damage or de- 
teriorate them. This is particularly 
important for products which must 
be kept hot or cold and need special 
machines to accomplish this. 

6. The volume of demand for them 
must be high to justify high costs of 
investment and service. 

7. They should be reasonably in- 
expensive so that consumer hesitancy 
to spend a large sum of money in a 
machine will not deter purchase. 

This last point, Professor Wotruba 
says, “may diminish in importance 
as the new machines which accept 
and provide change for paper money 
are put to greater use.” 

The Professor advises in the re- 
port that automatic vending involves 
relatively high costs of operation be- 
cause of the large initial investment 
in machinery, high depreciation ex- 
penses and large expenses incurred 
in servicing and maintaining the 
equipment. He places the operating 
costs of a typical vending installation 
at 40 per cent of the sales or higher. 

The report states that the vending 
industry is experiencing rapid and 
dynamic growth as a part of total re- 
tailing in the United States. It es- 
timates industry sales in 1963 at a 
total of $3 billion, and says that pro- 
jections of $10 billion by 1975 are 
not uncommon.

chandising’, No. 70, may be obtained

Calamari Promotes ‘Sky Divers’ 

CHICAGO — Paul Calamari, engineer- 
ing exec at the Bally Manufacturing 
Company, stepped momentarily into 
the role of salesman last week and 
sent out a bulletin to members of the 
trade in which he paraded the fea- 
tures of Bally’s line of flipper games, 
especially their latest single-player, 
‘Sky Divers’. 

Calamari praised the performance 
records of such Bally pin games as 
‘Hootenanny’, ‘Star-Jet’, ‘Monte Carlo’ 
and ‘Bongo’, saying “a Bally flipper 
has terrific eye and play appeal, is 
built to take the punishment of heavy 
action on location, and is just about 
as close to 100 per cent trouble-proof 
as a coin-operated machine can be.” 

The engineer said he used the 
“broadcast” type letter to express his 
views on the Bally line to members of 
the trade because “it would take all 
summer to write a personal letter to 
each one of my friends of bingo days.”

New Kaye 
Del. Klub Pool 



BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Irving Kaye 
Company, Inc., has released its new 
bumper table, the Deluxe Klub Pool. 

The new table features the same 
4% -inch wood grained formica top 
frame as the firm’s ‘Deluxe Eldo- 
rado.’ This top frame adds to the ap- 
pearance of the table as well as to its 
solid construction. The steel corner 
sections are finished with a durable 
epoxy paint for longer lasting beau- 
ty. Five inch, chrome plated leg level- 
ers enable the table to be leveled 
without lifting from the floor while 
adding to the table’s overall appear- 
ance. 

Other features incorporated into 
the Deluxe Klub Pool include a sepa- 
rate, maximum security coin box, ex- 
truded aluminum between the cabinet 
and top frame which masks out all 
screws and firmly anchored, lively 
metal bumpers. 

The removable drawer slides out 
for easy access to the mechanism, 
making the table easy to service. 

The ‘Deluxe Klub Pool’ is available 
with an irridescent blue and white 
cabinet with matching white legs 
trimmed in blue, or with a cardinal 
red and white cabinet with matching 
white legs trimmed in red. Two sizes 
are available: Regular 56" x 40" and 
Jumbo 75" x 43".

Eastern 


They came from near and far to attend the Barney Sugerman services. 
Coinmen from everywhere. Practically every well-known operator and dis- 
tributor in New York and Jersey. Bally’s Bill O’Donnell and Williams’ Sam 
Stern arrived from Chicago. Jack Mitnick came up from Florida. Wherever 
you looked you saw a face that was at once familiar and forlorn. This was 
the effect Shugy’s passing had on the coin machine industry here and by 
the end of the week they were still talking about him. They will talk about 
him for many years to come. 

With death comes life and we must learn to live with the bad as well as 
the good. A new birth blessed one of the coin machine industry members 
only this month. A first for Lou Schreiber who will have to get used to the 
name ‘Grandpa.’ His daughter Estelle, and hubbie Marvin Lisnitzer, proud 
parents of a baby girl — Deborah — 7 Vi lbs. of joy. . . . Lou Wolberg’s wife, 
up and around after surgery, feeling fine, thank goodness. . . . Sidney Gerber’s 
wife, up and around, back to normal again. . . . Pete Tabb, Sol’s son, recently 
married . . . and life goes on. 

Rock-Ola’s ‘Grand Prix’ has Joe Ash on a ‘hot line’ to Chicago where he 
presses Exec VP Ed Doris each day for delivery on growing orders. The 
Philly reception was one of the finest seen, according to Ash. 

A1 Simon won’t argue. He and A1 D’lnzillo told us that the ‘Grand Prix’ 
reception was unbelievable. Tommy Greco still bubbling over his op reaction 
to the phono. Joe Grillo dittos the comments. 

The Tenth Ave. scene was strictly ‘April Showers’ most of last week but 
it couldn’t dampen the Weiner Brothers’ enthusiasm for Gold Medal’s pop- 
corn vender. While looking forward with great relish to the warm weather 
days, Bill Weiner cited the case of one operator who installed a popcorn 
vender in a Talmud Torah, a young men’s religious school, and made 170 
sales in 24 hours time. This operator and his wife ran out of breath carting 
bags of fresh popcorn to keep the machine filled, Bill said. 

Lou Druckman down at United East Coast had his hands full shipping both 
the ‘Tempest’ and many of their reconditioned models. Meanwhile, ‘Tornado’ 
and ‘Bank Pool’ are moving along nicely, Lou reports. 

Abe Lipsky said he’s looking forward to the Harry Siskin testimonial dinner 
June 6, which will culminate the 1964 UJA-Coin Division drive, and was specu- 
lating about the entertainment. Abe said that previous victory fetes had always 
offered first-class performers and hopes to see more of the same this time 
around. 

A1 Simon, in lauding the merits of the new Rock-Ola ‘Grand Prix’, said that 
the new machine “is clearly the best accepted phonograph we’ve ever had.” 
He and A1 D’lnzillo agreed that nearly half of the operators who came into 
the Simon showrooms to view the machine bought a machine before leaving. 
Meanwhile, A1 contends that orders for U.S. Billiards pool tables are in advance 
of production out at the Amityville plant. No complaints from his end though. 

Harry Berger’s new Westside Distributing is shaping up nicely, with new 
signs on the outside of the building and a deluge of equipment on the show- 
room floor. However, the pieces gather little dust, Harry said, advising that 
he’s done more business during those two weeks it took to move into the new 
headquarters than he’d done in two months in the old spot. Harry’s son Bob 
has been spending much of his six month leave of absence from Long Island 
University working along with his dad, but he will return to college this 
summer. 

Eric Bernay of A-l Record Distributors reports a great rush of action on the 
Beatles’ new disk ‘Can’t Buy Me Love.’ . . . Larry Feigenbaum revealed that 
he’s looking forward to lugging his wife’s oft-displayed antiques up to the 
latest exhibition on Park Ave. 

Murray Kaye shipped a Seeburg ‘Pick-A-Pack’ merchandise vender out to 
the Protestant Council Pavilion of the World’s Fair last Friday. He said that 
the exhibitors plan to vend religious books from the machine. He reports that 
the Ray Charles ‘Twin Pack,’ ‘Sweet & Sour Tears’ is making as big a hit with 
the ops as the original Sinatra issue did. 

Like Nick Kenny used to say in the N.Y. Mirror, “Dip your pen in sunshine 
and write to ...” a good customer and friend of Harold Kaufman’s and Sidney 
Greenfield’s by the name of Sam Sehr who’s laid up in Kings Highway hospital. 
The Banner Music operator expects to spend a few more weeks on the mend 
before he can resume normal activities so let’s all wish him a speedy recovery. 

Mike Mulqueen still talking about the sensational ‘Sensorama’ coin-operated 
three-dimensional film machine. The belly dancers just won’t quit, to hear 
Mike tell it. We’ve tried to sum up the story for those interested and it appears 
in this section, this issue. The Satevepost gave the machine a two-page spread, 
which should give you an idea of the promoters behind this entirely new 
amusement machine idea. 

New Jersey ops were invited to attend a statewide meeting last Wednesday, 
April 15th, to discuss plans agreed upon when the state okayed local-state 
communication plans last December. They were scheduled to discuss support 
of the publication of statistics concerning the industry, as an aid to educating 
the public and the legislators. Dick Steinberg, N.J. Council of CM Ops’ secre- 
tary, notified the coinmen. Bill Cannon, newly elected president, was expected 
to discuss the contact programs which will be set up between local associations 
in the state.

Cash Box— April 25, 1964 



Chicago Chatter 



Before reporting the numerous activities during a most eventful week we 
must express our shock and deep sorrow over the sudden death of Barney 
“Shugy” Sugerman. Few coinmen ever attained the popularity and genuine 
respect Shugy received from his great host of friends in the coin machine 
industry. He’ll certainly be missed by all of us. 

Thursday, April 16 was a significant day at the Seeburg Corporation. The 
occasion was the ground-breaking ceremonies at the site of the area where 
the new Seeburg plant will be erected. Mayor Richard J. Daley, and a retinue 
of civic officials were on hand to wish board chairman Delbert Coleman and 
President Jack C. Gordon well. Gordon’s ‘shaking hand’ was fairly worn off 
by well-wishers following Coleman’s announcement that Jack had been named 
to the Presidency of Seeburg. Good luck, Jack! After the ground-breaking 
ceremonies the entire contingent was whisked by chartered bus to the Drake 
Hotel for a day of festivities. Among the proud Seeburg execs on hand for 
the services, along with Del Coleman and Jack Gordon, were Bill Adair, Tom 
Herrick, Lillian Kubicek, Stanley Jarocki, Edward Claffey, Dan Collins, Bob 
Dunlap, Bob Breither, John Stewart, and many, many more Seeburgites. 

Another trade meet took place during this past week was the Chicago Mid- 
west Vending Conference, sponsored by the National Automatic Merchan- 
dising Assn., at the LaSalle Hotel, Saturday, April 11. Hosts were NAMA 
prexy Carl Millman, executive director Tom Hungerford, members of the staff, 
including Walter Reed, Gerry Whaley, Dave Hartley, etc. 

Among the other significant events of the week was the introduction of new 
amusement equipment by D. Gottlieb & Co. and United Mfg. Co. . . . Out at 
the Gottlieb plant Alvin Gottlieb announced that it is ‘World’s Fair’ time there 
this week, coinciding with the gala opening of the New York World’s Fair. 
The occasion at Gottlieb is the release of the firm’s new single player “World’s 
Fair” flipper amusement game. 

United is “setting the pace” with the new “Pacer” puck shuffle alley bowler, 
according to Herb Oettinger and Bill DeSelm. . . . While at the NAMA Meet 
last Saturday we managed to chat with Jim Newlander, Bob MacGregor and 
Phil Glover, all of Rowe AC Mfg. Co. Vice prexy Fred Poliak was unable to 
attend the affair. . . . It’s definitely Spring in April out at First Coin Machine 
Exchange, where prexy Joe Kline and Sam Kolber are the busiest “bees” ever. 
Fred Kline manages to keep close to the telephone to fulfill the operators’ 
needs. 

Sam Stern, president of Williams Electronics Mfg. Corp., was so visibly 
shaken when he heard of the sudden death of Shugy Sugerman last Saturday 
morning that he jetted to the east coast to be on hand for the services. 

While at the NAMA Vending Meet we chatted with Rock-Ola Mfg. execu- 
tives Frank Doyle, Dave Howie and Hugh Gorman. . . . Among the Chicago 
coinbiz people who were shattered by the demise of “Shugy” were Nate and 
Eve Feinstein, of World Wide Distribs. 

We know, judging from the smiles on Sam Wolberg’s and Sam Gensburg’s 
faces that everything is coming up roses at Chicago Dynamic Industries, with 
all ChiCoin amusement games selling well. It’s nice to see Sam Wolberg back 
in town and at his desk. 

Bill O’Donnell, prexy of Bally Mfg. Co., and Herb Jones were so shocked 
over Shugy’s death that they are still somewhat dazed. Shugy was one of the 
owners of Bally Mfg. Bill managed to attend the funeral in New Jersey on 
Sunday. . . . Now we know we’re gettin’ old! Handsome, young (very young!) 
Mark Jay Robbins, the pride of the Lincolnwood teen set, will shortly cele- 
brate his Bar Mitzvah. To all you unknowing Mark is the son of Joe and 
Marion Robbins, of Empire Coin Machine Exchange. . . . J. H. Keeney’s Clay- 
ton and Celia Nemeroff jetted out to Seattle last weekend to be on hand for 
their grandson Andrew J. Ellen’s one-year birthday. Andy’s parents are Fred 
and Audrey Ellen. 

The word from Ross Scheer of Western Trail Amusements is that he’s 
tickled over handling nationwide distribution for Kiddie Carousels kiddie rides. 
The agreement was pacted last week. Also, Ross says his firm is having such a 
field day with sales of Southland Engineering’s kiddie rides that Southland had 
to put on an extra shift to meet the demands by Western Trails for operators. 
Bill Racoosin, who heads Western Trails’ eastern firm has been dashing all 
over the eastern seaboard calling on operators. Sales in general are excellent, 
according to Ross and Bill. 

Howard Ellis urges all operators in the midwest to make their reservations 
at the Paxton Hotel in Omaha early, since a heavy attendance is expected at 
the 9 state meet, Saturday and Sunday, June 6 & 7. ... A huge bash was held 
in Omaha Sunday, April 12, when Hymie and Eddie Zorinsky, of H. Z. Vend- 
ing & Sales Co., feted Rock-Ola’s new “Grand Prix” coin-operated phono in 
the Diplomat Hotel. 

We noticed heavy production at Midway Mfg. where the big item is a 
terrific baseball amusement game — “Top Hit.” This, of course, makes Hank 
Ross and “Iggy” Wolverton very happy (ditto Big Bob Jonesi!) . . . While 
Eddie and Adele Ginsburg are basking in the sun at Miami Beach Stan Levin 
and the rest of the gang at Atlas Music is busy showing Rowe AMI phonos 
and Rowe vending equipment to ops. We managed to chat and visit with Atlas 
Music’s Bob Fabian and Joe Klykum at the NAMA affair last weekend. 

Now that the weather is turning balmy Ted Rubey and Estelle Bye, at Mar- 
vel Mfg., are thinking about vacation-time. (But, who’s gonna keep an eye on 
production in the factory, Ted??). . . . Production is being maintained at full 
steam ahead at J. F. Frantz Mfg. Co., and Johnny Frantz is finding it in- 
creasingly more difficult to break away evenings for those delightful steam 
baths. Anyway, Johnny, those Frantz counter games are selling! Don Congdon 
spends most of his time on the road calling on customers. . . . Among the 
guests on hand at the NAMA session were Ed Ruber and Denis Parsons, of 
Woco Corp.

ing game — the rapidly changing score 
also is indicated on the backglass. 
Frames one to seven score 300 points 
for a strike, and 200 for a spare. 
Frames eight through ten score 600 
points for a strike, and 400 points for 
a spare. In addition, frames one 
through ten advance the “Bonus 
Score,” 400 for a strike and 200 points 
for a spare. The “Bonus Score” on the 
backglass shows only the accumulated 
bonus of the player who is ‘up’ at the 
time. 

After the tenth frame, each player 
(remember, “Pacer” is a six-player) 
shoots one additional frame to collect 
the accumulated “Bonus Score.” The 
full bonus is transferred to the play- 
er’s score for a strike. One-half of the 
bonus is transferred to the player’s 
score for a spare. 

There is considerable action in 


Western Trails To 
Distribute For 
Kiddie Carousel 

CHICAGO — Ross Scheer, president of 
Western Trails Amusement Company 
has announced he has signed an 
agreement with Kiddie Carousels, lo- 
cated in Ric Lake, Wisconsin, for ex- 
clusive distribution of the firm’s kid- 
die rides throughout the entire United 
States. 

Scheer stated that he and his as- 
sociates consider the acquisition of 
nationwide distribution of Kiddie Car- 
ousel’s equipment “a most gratifying 
accomplishment for Western Trails 
Amusements.” The firm also distrib- 
utes the Southland Engineering 
Corp.’s kiddie ride line. 


“Dual-Flash,” wherein strikes and 
spares are indicated by flashing lights 
across the playfield near the bowling 
pins. The lights stop on the first 
stroke of the puck if a strike is made 
by the player. If a strike is not ac- 
complished, the lights continue flash- 
ing for a possible spare score. 

In “Flash Scoring,” strikes and 
spares are also indicated by flashing 
lights. Differing from “Dual-Flash,” 
the lights always stop flashing when- 
ever the pins are struck on the first 
shot. 

The top score in “Flash-Bonus 
Scoring” is 9600 points. “Bonus Scor- 
ing” has a peak score of 9900 points. 
In all, “Pacer” has 10 different meth- 
ods of play. Such as, five feature 
types of scoring games, plus an 
“Easy” and “Normal” strike zone 
handicap for each game. The player 
simply presses an appropriate button 
on the front panel of the cabinet, at 
the start of the game, to select the 
type of scoring game he prefers. 

DeSelm further explained that for 
a “faster, more exciting” playing and 
scoring game, the second stroke at 
the bowling pins can be thrown im- 
mediately after the first shop. Due to 
the eye-lash rapidity of the “Read- 
Out” lighted panel on the backglass 
there is no waiting for the score to be 
flashed on. This, he says, is a patented 
United engineering feature. 

As for servicing ease, the backbox 
in “Pacer” puck shuffle alley is so de- 
signed and constructed to allow for 
minimum effort by the operator’s 
serviceman. However, he further ex- 
plained that this newest puck shuf- 
fle alley bowler is built to offer the 
very maximum of trouble-free dura- 
bility in all types of locations 
throughout this country and in for- 
eign countries.

WURLITZER PROUDLY WELCOMES 

BsS DISTRIBUTING CO., INC. 

As Distributor for Buffalo and Western Hew York 




These two men have joined 
forces to create a company 
which offers Western New 
York operators complete fa- 
cilities for the sale and service 
of Wurlitzer phonographs and 
allied equipment. Each has 
had years of experience in his 
field and both agree on one 
thing. The Ten Top Tunes is 
the greatest boon to the coin 
music business since the mint- 
ing of the half-dollar coin. 

IN UNISON, John and Charlie chorus, “By 
activating the patron who shrank from start- 
ing the music, this exclusive Wurlitzer fea- 
ture has doubled the revenue from music in 
many locations." 


You, as a music operator, owe it to yourself to know all about this 
profit producing feature. If you are in Western New York, drop in 
and see Charlie or John at 777 Main Street in Buffalo. Otherwise, see 
your Wurlitzer distributor. He has an interesting story to tell you . . . 
and a profitable one.
